A Gift of Wonder
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
I am seeking representation for Rachel's Way, a coming-of age, middle grade, ecotopian novel set in 2055, the first book in the Sunway Series. The book opens with Lucy, a sixth grader, smiling as she pedals to school through the sunway, a 130 mile long greenhouse on Prince Edward Island. Thrilled because she has secretly just become Canada's youngest official climate worker, Lucy is passionate about helping to reverse climate change and about the baby alpaca that she plans to adopt. But, as she remembers overhearing (through the laundry chute) her mom's late night phone call, she begins to worry that her secret plans may be undone.
My teaching memoir, A Gift of Wonder, A True Story Showing School as it Should Be, was published by SteinerBooks in 2017. When I am not imagining Lucy's life on Prince Edward Island (my favorite vacation spot), I am a freelancing with a focus on school renewal, especially the importance of teacher autonomy.
