I am an author of many Young Adult novels including Betsy Wickwire's Dirty Secret, Pigboy, Quid pro Quo, Dead-End Job and 2011 Red Maple Winner, Not Suitable for Family Viewing. Most of my books are funny and/or scary mysteries. I also write high-low quick reads for reluctant readers. Quid pro Quo won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Juvenile Crime novel and was also nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award. Betsy Wickwire is up for a 2012 Snow Willow Award. Keep your fingers crossed for her!
