The proof of my new young adult book arrived in the mail yesterday. As you can see, it is called Free Pizza and it comes out in May this year. After Seven Tales, it was tough to leave the world of castles and kings. It was tougher thinking I had to top that book, since everybody seemed to like it. So, whatever it took to make Free Pizza good, I was willing to do – even if it meant ripping and tearing and rebuilding and polishing the thing to within an inch of its little life. My editor, Marg Gilks, thinks Free Pizza might be the best thing I’ve written. Truth be told, I spent so many years working on it, I can hardly believe the book is done and you all will soon get to read it. My vulnerable little literary munchkin is about to take the stage!
