Overview

I'm a Random House-published young adult author and ghostwriter looking to work on young adult, middle great, or commercial adult projects. My books include the YA contemporary thrillers DAMAGE DONE, which Entertainment Weekly called "disturbingly wonderful," the New York Daily News said was "a real page-turner," and New York Times-bestselling author Roxane Gay called "incredible," and NEVER MISSING, NEVER FOUND, which received a starred review from Publisher's Weekly. Both books were named to the New York Public Library's Best Books for Teens List. I have also ghostwritten young adult fiction for others, including fantasy, science fiction, and adventure fiction.
