Hello, Mixed-Up Files friends! It seems like ages since I joined the blog in 2014. So much has happened–an international move, writing and revising (and rewriting and revising and…) four middle grade manuscripts, ups, downs, highs, lows…you get the picture.
As much as I’ve loved geeking out on middle-grade books with you all, it is time for me to move on. If we were face to face, I would probably sing to you, because that’s what I do (just ask my kids). Instead, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite farewell songs:
I’m thrilled to see several Mixed-Up Filers stepping up to take over leadership on the blog and know you, dear readers, will continue to be in very good hands.
And because I can’t resist, I’ll leave you with one last book list too.
2018 Summer Reads
