I have finished writing my sequel to EGGS OVER EVIE. Entitled NEW YEAR'S EVIE, the book takes place a year later. Evie and Mrs. Hamilton decide to enroll their dogs in a dog obedience course offered at the local rec center. And - of course - Shanti is the instructor. In the meantime Evie must deal with her mother's new boyfriend, her father's twin toddlers, and a strange little boy who lives in her father's condo complex.

Two more great sci-fi books for young readers: LARKLIGHT by Philip Reeve is sort of a Lemony Snicket version of space travel which takes place in a flying house during the Victorian era in England. A girl and her brother encounter robot spiders and space pirates. Yikes! H.I.V.E. by Mark Walden is an acronym for Higher Institute of Villainous Education. It is somewhat like Hogwarts, but for Superhero Villains. The school, which is hidden inside an inactive volcano, recruits (make that kidnaps) children who exhibit extraordinary talents in particular areas. Only trouble is...leaving is not an option!
