Yahoo! I have just signed a book contract for my latest project, another Y/A novel titled Dancing in the Rain. The title may change, but it was inspired from this quote by Vivian Greene. (This is not the cover of the book… that is yet to come.)
For years I’ve been asked by young readers to write a sequel to my earlier title, Dancing Naked, but, although I appreciated their interest, I never gave it much thought. I’d moved on to other projects.
Then, a few years ago, a young woman wrote to me to say she’d read Dancing Naked many times as a teenager, and even though she is an adult now, she’s still waiting for the sequel. She wants to know what became of Brenna, the baby who was born at the end of Dancing Naked, and her mother, Kia.
That set me to wondering what became of Brenna too. She’d be a teenager herself now. How was her life turning out? And Kia? Is she doing okay?
I decided to write the book to find out and I’m absolutely delighted that Orca Book Publishers has agreed to publish it.
This will be book #10, a nice round number. Thank you to all those wonderful readers who encouraged me to write this book. It wouldn’t have happened without you.
