DREAMWOOD is my first book, out now from Putnam (Penguin Random House). It’s the story of Lucy Darrington, a determined twelve-year-old girl who undertakes a dangerous journey to find her father, an expert in the supernatural who’s gone missing in search of dreamwood, a rare tree with magical properties. After running away from boarding school, she arrives in a remote part of what’s like the Pacific Northwest—although with key differences: magic trees, sea serpents, and haunted forests in a landscape controlled by the Lupine people. Lucy and her vexingly stubborn friend Pete follow her father’s trail to the deadly woods on Devil’s Thumb—only to find that dreamwood itself might be the greatest threat of all. Check it out on IndieBound, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. Or read some of the super nice reviews.
