Do you feel a strong connection to a certain animal? Do you feel that a type of animal represents your unique essence?
I’m not sure I have a spirit animal, although hedgehogs will always have a soft spot in my heart.
This little prickly critter helped inspire BOY ON HOLD, after all. Did you know, I’m also an illustrator? Here’s my super-realistic hedgehog drawing that appears on the back cover of BOH and also at every chapter heading.
In honor of my birthday this year, I’m hosting a HEDGEHOG GIVEAWAY!
No, not an actual, live hedgehog, silly. I’m talking SOCKS! Adorable, hedgehog socks!
Here’s how to play:
Post a selfie with BOY ON HOLD on any social media platform (kindle or phone image ok!)
Tag me and one other hedgehog-loving friend who’d want a chance to win.
On May 16–my bday—my kids will randomly pick 4 lucky winners!
Post as many times as you’d like to increase your chances! (Now thru 5/16!.US & Canada only…)
I’m beyond thrilled to share the amazing cover design for my upcoming book, Boy on Hold, which releases August 13, 2019 by Immortal Works Press!
Here’s the teaser…
Cabbage Night, 1991. The traditional night of pranks takes a disturbing turn when a violent crime rocks a small Adirondack town. Even more so when the only witness is a seven-year-old boy. Hen Trout, who had hoped to catch a pet hedgehog that night, instead sees his beloved Miss Sally become a victim.
Single mom Marcella Trout is blindsided when Tyler, her seventeen-year-old, is arrested for the very crime Hen witnessed. Now Tyler’s eerie mood swings seem dark and frightening and rooted in a family history Marcella has desperately tried to bury. As the criminal investigation churns on, the tenuous fabric of the Trout family begins to unravel…and even Hen begins to question the truth.
