Sneak Peek Into a Glittery New Title

Illustrator Katherine Roy and I can’t yet share the cover for our February 2023 book together, THE FIRE OF STARS, but look at these jacket proofs with glittery gold foil. This parallel story of star formation told alongside the formation of astrophysicist Cecilia Payne is really going to SHINE. Chronicle Kids Books is going all out. šŸ¤©šŸ’«

Cover Reveal: A TRUE WONDER: The Comic Book Hero Who Changed Everything

I’m thrilled to share the cover for A TRUE WONDER: The Comic Book Hero Who Changed Everything, illustrated by Katy Wu. The book releases 9/28/21 from HMH/Clarion. You can preorder now wherever books are sold or mark it “to read” on Goodreads, and you’ll receive an email when it’s out. I’m so excited about this behind-the-scenes look at the creation and evolution of Wonder Woman, the iconic character who has inspired generations of girls and women as a symbol of female strength and power. For ages four and up.
