Call Me Amy

feet copy

I am happy to announce CALL ME AMY will be published by Luminis Books in spring 2013!

CALL ME AMY, a finalist in the SCBWI Work-in-Progress Grant competition and aimed at readers aged 8 – 14, is now complete (and a sequel is in the works).
Amy, a shy thirteen-year-old, lives in a small fishing village on the coast of Maine in 1973. With the help of a wounded seal pup, she gets to know Craig, who slinks around in an oversized army jacket. A new law against handling wild marine mammals brings suspense to the story. Where can they keep Pup until he heals? Their only hope is to trust Miss Cogshell, an elderly woman keeping to herself amidst jeers from the local kids, who catches them sneaking Pup into her woodshed in the middle of the night. Throughout the book, small challenges prepare Amy for her greatest one of all. A challenge that leads her to discover that everyone, herself included, has a voice worth hearing.
