As I finish up Asha's story this summer, I'll have to gear up for my fall and winter projects. The contracts arrived yesterday: a two-book series for Dutton (The Penguin Young Readers Group.) I'd tell you what the books going to be about, but I don't want to think about them AT ALL until August. I'm too afraid I'll lose my grip on Asha. Let me tell you the main character's name, at least. She's called Sparrow, and I love her already. I hope you will, too.
