I write Middle Grade books and my favorite thing to do is help young people write or connect them with a great book. I’m also a pretty big fan of spicy food and both chocolate and coffee or any combination of chocolate and coffee, but please, don’t make my chocolate or coffee spicy! I grew up in Ohio, but I’ve been living in Singapore for almost 15 years! Which is perfect for spicy food, but also kind of not because it’s super hot here ALL year around and it makes me sweat! On the other hand, it is nice to swim on Christmas!
