By day, I'm a user experience designer; by evenings/weekends, I write novels from my home in Scappoose, Ore. My newest is Awake in the World, published February 2019 by Roaring Brook Press; my previous novel, Eleanor, was published by Crown in 2016 and has since been translated into German, Portuguese, and Turkish. I’m currently working on a new project.

An Eleanor fossil

Our slow move from one house to another continues, and as it does, we keep unearthing little treasures we had forgotten were lying about. 

Among them, the archive boxes containing all of my original drawings, scripts, and thumbnail sketches for the Eleanor webcomic I worked on years ago. I've mentioned the comic before; it was never completed, and is a little artifact of the story that once was. Aside from the characters, the setting, and some broad themes, it has very little to do with the novel. 

But these are fun to look back on, both to laugh at (I am so bad at figure drawing), and to reminisce.

If for some reason you're interested in reading the unfinished comic, it can still be found online.
