Coming This Year to a Bookstore Near You – Stuff I Wrote!

January 4, 2014

First – apologies for the weirdness over the previous week. Hackers hit the site December 29, but since the back end was working, I didn’t realize there was a problem until I tried to post Thursday. Fortunately, I had a backup, and with the able help of my very own Tech Support, we are back in business.

But enough about weird people on the internet – today I am firing the confetti cannons to celebrate the release of some brand new books!

Living With Obesity coverLiving With Obesity was a difficult book to write. The topic is both scientifically complex and emotionally fraught, and it was challenging to strike the right tone – honest, but empowering. I hope that teens who faces health complications related to their weight will find this book helpful and inspiring.

Living With Scoliosis was difficult for an entirely different reason – my mom had it. I missed her constantly while writing it, and wished she were still here to tell me what developing scoliosis as a teen was actually like. I was also amazed at how little medical knowledge and treatment methods have changed since mom was a kid in the 1960s.

Part of the Living With Health Conditions series for teens, both books are available now through Amazon or direct from ABDO PublishingLiving With Scoliosis cover

In August, Ashby-BP (publisher of Fox Talk) will release my new animal science book, Fuzzy Forensics: DNA Fingerprinting Gets Wild. More details when we’ve got a cover, hopefully in the next couple months!

That deadline I mentioned Thursday is for another ABDO book that will probably release in August as well. Once the title and pub date are confirmed I will spill all the details, but for now I can reveal that concrete is a major theme. 🙂

So how has 2014 already been awesome for you?
