H
ave you ever wished you were a character in a story? Narrated scenes from your own life? Seventh-grader Mysti Murphy does. If her life were fictional, she'd know how to deal with the dual narratives of her world: drama at school where her best friend pretends not to know her so he can be a hipster; and the drama at home where her dad is in the hospital and her mother is afraid to leave the house, even to get groceries.

Here is a girl trying to change her story.

Welcome! 

My latest book is SURE SIGNS OF CRAZY


Read an excerpt of the book or read my interview in the Dallas Morning News 
for a little behind-the-scenes information about the story.
