BECOMING BRIANNA hits the (virtual) shelves TODAY!
Becoming Brianna is the fourth book in the best-selling Emmie & Friends series. The story brings Brianna from Positively Izzy back into the limelight, in a way she never thought possible. She must overcome all kinds of frustrating challenges, all the while trying to answer the biggest question of all: What do I believe?
This book is perfect for anyone who loves humor, heart, and of course, funny drawings to highlight all of it! Ages 8-12.

So excited to reveal this cover of my next book in the best-selling “Emmie & Friends” series: BECOMING BRIANNA. I’m also excited to bring back one of my beloved main characters (and her colorful family) from POSITIVELY IZZY. This book has been an absolute joy to work on, and it’s definitely influenced by personal experience. I hope you love it!
BB comes out in May, 2020. You can pre-order it here.
I’m so excited to be among such an amazing lineup of authors at the North Texas Teen Book Festival in Irving, TX and the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) in Chicago, IL. I’ll be in Texas March 22-23 and Chicago March 24.

Hope to see you!
Some of you may have noticed that I posted my upcoming book’s cover a few weeks ago. I had to take it down because there was a last-minute title change. I’m pleased to reveal the NEW (and final) cover for…
Just Jaime comes out in May, 2019. I hope you like it as much as I loved writing it. It carries a theme that’s loosely based on real events, one that’s so incredibly universal in the middle school world: exclusion. But don’t worry…it’s also packed with plenty of humor!
You can pre-order Jaime here.
And more great news: Emmie and Izzy now come in a boxed set, perfect for the holidays! You can order that here.
Event alert! I’ll be at the Buckeye Book Fair in Wooster, OH, on November 3, 9:30-4. Hope to see you! Details here.
This speaks for itself. I couldn’t be more thrilled. EMMIE and IZZY are doing phenomenally, and I have you readers to thank. So…THANK YOU!!
Besides signing copies of Invisible Emmie and Pajama Diaries books, I’ll also be part of a panel for tween/teen readers:
1:00 pm – 1:45 pm: Learn from an expert panel of illustrators as they discuss all things connected to creating pictures for books – Joe Sutphin, Mark and Mary Willenbrink, Christina Wald, Terri Libenson (graphic artist)
Hope to see you there!
Gearing up for a very busy spring. Pretty soon I’ll be going on tour for my new book, Positively Izzy, which debuts May 1. I will post that schedule as soon as it’s locked in. For now, I hope you’ll pre-order a copy!
In the meantime, I look forward to presenting Invisible Emmie at Elyria Public Library on Monday, April 9, at 6:30 pm. Click here for registration. Hope to see you!
