Dear Reader:

Callie Jones stumbled into my head one day, quite by accident, and then refused to leave. From the moment Callie appeared, I loved her. She was funny/sad, confident/doubtful, brash/timid, but most of all independent. She had a story to tell, a story so captivating that I knew Callie had to have a book of her own.

Callie has just started middle school, where everyone else seems to know the rules. She doesn't. And so Callie sets out to write some rules of her own.

But Callie's not the only one writing new rules. When the town council proposes a rule banning Halloween—a holiday that Callie and her family have a unique, and much loved way of celebrating—Callie is forced to take a stand. And she learns that, in order to stand up for what she believes, she might have to defy some rules.

I'll be giving away signed copies of CALLIE'S RULES picked from random entries. To enter, go to my website,, and click on the link to contact me.
