About meI am a published author of 28 books, mostly for children and young adults; a former magazine editor; and mom to a seventh-grader. My published works include 20 books for Sweet Valley High and other teen fiction series, all written under pseudonyms. My nonfiction kids' books, written under my own name, are on topics ranging from Dragons to Stonehenge to the Cherokee Indians. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, drawing, photography, traveling, overthrowing the governments of small countries, befriending dragons, slaying demons, and picking out Legos from under the couch.

About my libraryI have way more books than I've had time to catalog, probably well over 5000. I also have a Little Free Library (#9136) for giving away books. Still, my collection always seems to grow.
