Dear Reader:

When I wrote DAIRY QUEEN way back when, I loved the ending and how it allowed readers to figure their own future for D.J. Schwenk. But it turned out readers are far more interested in my version! Was D.J. going to make the football team as Wisconsin's first girl linebacker? And more importantly, what was going to happen with Brian?? Thus THE OFF SEASON, and now FRONT AND CENTER. The book also grew out of my curiosity about how someone as shy and self-effacing as D.J. would handle college sports recruiting (for basketball, thank you) and all the attention that this brings.

You can read an excerpt and please email children' for the chance to win a signed copy of FRONT AND CENTER! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

I'll be chatting with fans on Facebook on October 19th at 7PM EST, so be sure to become a Fan and join the conversation!
