Hi and thanks for visiting! I'm the author of more than forty-five books for young readers of all ages. I also teach Writing for Young People in Lesley University's low-residency MFA program.


Scroll down for news, and see side columns (or keep scrolling down, if you're on your phone) for upcoming events and appearances and to learn how to order a signed book!


Looking for ebooks? All my novels are available as ebooks, and there are links on the book detail pages for each one. (Quick links here if you already know what you want: Dragon, Princess, Mage, Evil Librarian, Revenge, Curse.) Please buy from WORD Bookstore via Kobo (that's what these links go to) if you can. Independent bookstores need your support now more than ever!


You can listen to Julie Andrews read Marilyn's Monster on her new podcast, Julie's Library! After you listen, scroll down past the episode on the show's website to see sketches and monster-drawing tips from illustrator Matt Phelan.
