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.

Eleanor arrives in German

On January 9, Heyne Verlag published the German-language edition of Eleanor, translated by Sabine Thiele. Ten days later, I've received copies of my own.

This is a lovely book! I don't speak German, so I can't read a word of it, but boy, is it gorgeous. It's quite exciting to see the novel enjoy new life around the world, and this is the first translated edition I've seen. (There are two more in the works — Portuguese and Turkish — but I don't have publication dates for either yet.)
