New Book Day!

I’ve been asked to do anthologies several times, but either the timing wasn’t right, or the theme didn’t excite me. But when I was invited to this one, I was so inspired by the concept that I knew I had to do it. The idea of taking the woman we know as Madame Curie and envisioning her teen years through a fantasy/science fiction/light horror lens was too good to pass up. So this is my first anthology and it’s with many talented writers. It should be available in the usual places, but if you want to support independent bookstores, consider going to which will take you to my personal book page on a site that supports all indie booksellers. If you want a personalized copy from me, then please order from and let them know what you would like me to write. If you want signature-only, might have some left.

Under the beautiful dust jacket with the shiny embossed title and embossed beaker and smoke trail is that bright orange cover with the skull on front and back. Black end papers and touches like spiderweb designs on each title page make reading this a delight. Ages 12-17.
