"So you think you babysit monsters?" is now published

Dear Bookworms:
It's taken me awhile to get to this point, but I am excited to share that my newest book, "So you think you babysit monsters?" has finally been published!

This is a middle grade fantasy novel set outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is the first book of the series The Abercrombie Family Business: Totally True, Tir Griffin Story #1, and tells the story of Mackenzie Abercrombie -- a 13 year old Magic Minder. Mackenzie lives in a special neighborhood called Tir Griffin where she and her family are surrounded by monster families in human disguise. It's her responsibility to watch the little ones, to keep them safe from the local mortals. Mackenzie also has a completely normal life outside of Tir Griffin, which for a middle-schooler, is anything but normal anyway! 

My good friend and artist, Carol Chew, illustrated the cover for me, which shows Mackenzie  standing in Tir Griffin's entrance gate, holding little Michael Roper (a toddler dragon) and Cynthia Patrick (a toddler Cyclops) sitting next to them.  Michael and Cynthia are two of Mackenzie's charges. I love how Carol's drawing really brought the characters to life!

The book is now available in print and ebook versions on Amazon, Barnes and Noble,  iTunes and elsewhere.  I hope you'll check it out.

Happy Reading and Happy Holidays!
