Medical student, writer, folk singer, and theatrical fight director. 100% free-range California-grown human. I stay up late, I own more books than I'll ever get around to reading, and I am guaranteed not to chip or fade.


...but let's stop messing around and get to the exciting stuff: THE BOOK IS HERE! After nearly eight years of working with the world's best co-authors, I'm thrilled beyond thrills that TORTALL: A SPY'S GUIDE is out. It's a companion to the bestselling young adult fantasy novels of Tamora Pierce, with maps, illustrations, letters from beloved characters, and -- my personal favorite -- bad love poetry. You can get a sneak peak at Hypable, and it's available now wherever books are sold!
