Author Notes

HK PM Dannahs I live on a farm in Pennsylvania with over 30 pets, including fainting goats, horses, and a dog named Moose. I love writing and reading books, but my favorite job has been being a mom. I have two daughters and one son. Maybe one day we will meet at one of my live stage events for tween girls and their moms. They're called True Girl. (They used to be called Secret Keeper Girl.) Check out more about those events-and a lot of other great stuff-at
