Synopses & Reviews

Story Behind the Book
Over the years, I have worn many hats, from pre-school teacher to Young Life leader to political activist to senior editor.But most of all I love to write! In the past few years, I have published more than ninety books for children, teens, and adults. I hope the Diary of a Teenage Girl series will impact the lives of teens through an honestand gutsy approach of a "diary style" book.
