About meI'm an author---of young adult fiction, mostly.
I like stories of everyday people going through the minor and major challenges and triumphs of everyday life.

About my libraryIt's a mix of books I own, books I've read (that I own or borrowed from the library or a friend), and books I want to read. I've opted not to include our entire family library. If I were to add my husband's books, you'd see more theology, education theory, our entire collection of classics, and a whole lot of thrillers. Also, because I'm a writer and he's a teacher, we acquire a lot of books that come and go. I'm hoping to catalog the ones that stay---in the house or in the memory.
When I first started out here, I rated a few things, but I hate star ratings so I don't do that any more. If something was memorable to me in some way, I add it to my Memorable Reads collection.

I sent you a friends request- the kids at Northwest High Clarksville, TN are still talking about your visit earlier this month. Thank you once again!
I had just added your book *Sweethearts* to my library (an EXTREMELY large one--but no, they are not all in my house, I have an office too) and noticed that you were an LT author. I am one as well although unregistered as such. I just thought I'd say that, as one who reads a ton of YA books, I found *Sweethearts* one of those rare standouts, a truly original, compelling, and beautifully-written work. It's a book that raises questions that will stay with me, rather than just offering neat answers. In this I'd compare it to E. Lockhart's *Disreputable History...*, a very different recent book that still left me thinking.
I'm filled with admiration. Well done.
Most of the books in my library I don't own, but read from the public library. I believe LibraryThing is meant for the books you've read, not necessarily just the books you own.
I finished "Sweethearts" a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. Looking forward to reading much more from you! :)

Yeah! Ava is actually a friend of mine, we used to work together at the New Yorker. She's brilliant!
