Launch Party for This Time Will Be Different!

Join me in celebrating the launch of my second book, This Time Will Be Different!

I’ll talk with another secret author a little about what it was like to write this book, some fun facts and Easter eggs I’ve hidden inside it, and I’ll answer any questions you have.

Bonus: there’ll be yummy snacks and a raffle for a Kepler’s gift card, a few of my recent favorite YA/MG books, and more!

You can pre-order a copy from Kepler’s here: https://www.keplers.com/book/9780062473448

I hope to see you there!
