*dusts off poor, neglected news section* I have news! My ninth book was announced this week!
I’m super excited to collaborate with three other amazing women on this project: Joy McCullough, author of the the incredible, National Book Award-longlisted BLOOD WATER PAINT; Caroline Tung Richmond, author of several brilliant historical YAs, co-editor of the food-based anthology HUNGRY HEARTS, and a friend of almost ten years now; and Tess Sharpe, author of the beautiful YA thriller FAR FROM YOU and my TOIL & TROUBLE co-editor. If you’re wondering who’s writing which March sister, here’s a graphic Joy made:
The book sold on proposal and is still being written – it’s due in September – so I can’t say much yet. But I’m so excited to reimagine Meg. I stan a bossy older sister. And sisterhood is a recurring theme in my work, and LITTLE WOMEN is a foundational text for me, so it means a lot to play in this playground! A million thanks to our agent, Jim McCarthy, who brought us all together and then found us the perfect editorial home. I’ve long admired the books Wendy Loggia’s worked on at Delacorte, and I’m so excited to be a Delacorte/Random House author!
Stay tuned for more news, and in the meantime stay home if you can and stay well.
