Book tour was terrific, thanks to the astounding work of everyone who stepped up along the way to make my introduction of the Baumgartner family such a wonderful and heart-warming success! Friends, family and colleagues kept me going throughout the ride and I am forever grateful.
This life of books, however, means always having the next one in the pipeline. Thankfully, I do!
My next project, The Kids Are Gonna Ask is the story of seventeen-year-old twins — Thomas and Savannah McClair — who find themselves swept up in a cultural firestorm when they start a podcast to find their biological father after their mother dies. Like the Baumgartners, it’s a story about family, friction, and perseverance mixed with (hopefully) plenty of laughter.
There’s a grandmother with a fascination for medical oddities; a hate-mongering blogger/conspiracy theorist; a neighbor who refuses to leave the house without her hair done; and a dog named after Katherine Mansfield.
I’m thrilled to be working with the same editor at Park Row Books who guided the Baumgartners in for landing, Natalie Hallak. Together, and with a whole mess of help from the entire HaperCollins team, Natalie and I will get the book in readers hands just over a year from now — May, 2020.
In the meantime, stay tuned. With any luck, you may just get a few more early glances.
Be well, read often.
