I now have four books under contract coming from the good folks at Candlewick Press.
I have finished the first drafts of two. One is tentatively titled The Bird Woman’s Son, about Sacagawea and her son, Jean Baptiste. A second (working title, Deadwood Days) is about the events surrounding the murder of a high school friend of mine during the summer of 1979.
I’m deep into the first draft of the third book now, the final book in a trilogy (think New Found Land and The Watch that Ends the Night) of historical journey/disaster tales. The subject is the doomed Donner Party who find themselves trapped in the Sierra Nevada mountains in 1848.
Next up will be a picture book of poems about Space, also from Candlewick Press.
