I’m pleased to be included in a new Young Adult anthology—THIS SUMMER STORM. It’s now available in print and digital formats.
THIS SUMMER STORM is a collection of some of the best young adult stories out there today! In this exciting group of tales, it seems “one of everything” happens. Tornadoes, comets, hurricanes and raging river waters are all set to wreak havoc. But just when things can’t get any worse, along comes a life-changing experience in each story that is just as unsettling as the threatening weather.
