A peek at the cover of THE SECRET OF JOY (will be published in trade paperback this November by Simon & Schuster). I am in love with the cover. In LOVE.
Sorry it's been so long since my last post–I was chin high in revisions for both novels (THE SECRET OF JOY and THE MOSTS). I'm now working on the proposal for my next book (for adults) and am smitten with the necessary research: Italian cooking. I used to think New York City was the only place I'd ever want to live–until I traveled to Rome. I haven't been everywhere, but nowhere else has had the same kind of magical effect on me that Rome did. The book I'm conceiving takes place right here in Maine, which has a magic of its own, but it's a very, very, very different kind of magic. Interesting what the combination will bring . . . .
