From the author's site:Have you ever seen a bully in action and done nothing about it? Instead of being bystanders, the kids at Pete's new school get involved. When the juice box mess becomes more than just a dirty shirt, Pete's classmates teach him about "The Promise". Will Pete decide to shed his bullying habits and make "The Promise"?
Born and Raised: In a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, I grew up with red shag carpet, The Smurfs and Cabbage Patch Dolls. In my past time, I played flashlight tag with the neighborhood kids and listened to NKOTB aka The New Kids on The Block.
Family: I am lucky to have a large family. I have an older sister, Angela, who also ate spaghetti in a hot dog bun (among other crazy concoctions my mom created for us) growing up. I am married to the coolest guy ever and together, we are raising our baby girl Ruby.
Favorite book as a child: Frances Books by Russell Hoban and Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls.
Favorite book as an adult: The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks (I’m a fan for the love stories).
