I'm so excited to announce that I have a new book coming November 8, 2022! The Worst Villain Ever is a sweet and funny supervillain story for ages 8-12. The cover reveal will be a little down the road, but I can tell you that the cover is everything I ever hoped for. I can't wait to share it with you! In the meantime, here's a little bit about the book!
When eleven-year-old George Pruwell is finally admitted to the Academy of Villainy and Wrongdoing, he has big plans of making his family proud, especially his older brother Alex. Unfortunately, unlike his brother, George is anything but villainous. To secure a slot in the school's best class roster and prove himself worthy of his family's wonderfully wicked name, he takes on a nearly impossible assignment: defeat Captain Perfectus, the world's greatest superhero.
Now, George has to figure out how one too-nice-villain-in-training can defeat the most impressive superhero of all time. Alex offers his help, but George isn’t so sure he wants to use his big brother's methods. And when Captain Perfectus turns out to have some seriously big problems of his own, George must choose whether to follow his instincts and help the superhero or crush him and become the most villainous Pruwell ever.
I wrote this manuscript back in 2010! After several revisions, I eventually pitched it on Pitmad and that tweet actually led to my first published book, which was Fairy Keeper in 2015. However, Worst Villain never quite made it to print itself for various reasons, though there were some near misses. It was even under contract in 2017, but that publisher closed before publication. I'm so thrilled that this story has finally found a home with Snowy Wings Publishing.
This book has a special place in my heart. I had such fun with it and hope you have the same experience while reading. If you are reviewer, book seller, or librarian, let me know if you are interested in digital ARC! You can add it to your Goodreads reading list here!
Thanks so much!
To those of you in 4th-8th grade and older, I hope I can offer a smidgen of help & encouragement as you traverse the waters of intermediate school, middle school, and high school.
