Watch For Two New Releases
Two new books are now out from e.E. Charlton-Trujillo and me. Please help me welcome:
A GIRL CAN BUILD ANYTHING. This book is an inclusive ode to self-expression, girl power, and the big and small things all readers can create. It's perfect for maker spaces, art classes and every kind of creative kid. The book has wonderful illustrations by Keisha Morris. Want to get busy building?
LUPE LOPEZ: READING ROCK STAR. Learning to read is harder than Lupe expected. Can she find the beat and become a reading rock star? The delightful illustrations are by Joe Cepeda. This is a sequel to 2022's LUPE LOPEZ: ROCK STAR RULES.

If you’re so inclined, you can order any of my books online through:
Or, you could order from an independent bookstore.
My local favorites are:
- Mystery to Me (And, Mystery to Me can get you a signed copy should you so desire. Just ask for one when you order.)
- A Room of One's Own.
- Kismet Books.
Indie bookstores might have my books in stock and on their shelves. And, if they don't, they will order them for you. Most stores will even ship your order right to your door.
To find an independent bookstore, visit IndieBound. You can enter your ZIP code and see what’s nearby.
Here’s a list of other ways you can help support authors you know and/or like.
And, if you’re a GoodReads or Amazon user, you could write a review.
