Also just sent a revised manuscript to my agent entitled SHIVER ME SHIVERS: A SWASHBUCKLING HALLOWEEN TALE. It is about a group of pirates who set out on Halloween night to capture a ghost ship which is only visible every year on All Hallow's Eve. The story combines two favorite subjects for kids: Halloween and pirates!

My agent just sent out THIS LITTLE TURTLE to a number of editors. Based on "This Little Piggy", it is a rhyming story about five little sea turtles and their round-trip journey from birth to laying eggs of their own. The book should fit nicely into the common core requirements for elementary school students.

I have revised SHIVER ME SHIVERS and THIS LITTLE TURTLE for my agent at the Susan Schulman agency. In the meantime, still waiting to hear from my editor at Henry Holt about the novel I sent her  a while ago. Entitled PLAYING BY THE NUMBERS, it is the story of a girl whose brother returns from Canada after becoming a conscientious objector during the Vietnam war.
