I published my first book, Prepped and Punked, with Capstone in January 2014. My second and third titles, The Montgomery Bus Boycott: A Primary Source Exploration of the Protest for Equal Treatment and A Primary Source History of Slavery in the United States, came out with Capstone in January of 2015. My fourth book, The Eternal Solider, will be released May 7, 2019 with little bee books, and my fifth book about Betty Robinson, the first female to win an Olympic gold medal in track and field, comes out with HarperCollins in summer 2020. When I am not writing, I am teaching high school students English and writing. I live in Bakersfield, CA with three cute dogs, two even cuter children, and one handsome husband.
