I’ve been captivated by summer Olympics since childhood. When I see strong women, like Allyson Felix overcoming injuries, doubts and obstacles to achieve greatness. As a writer, that’s my kind of chick.

Felix is just one of many great athletes I will be rooting for when the Rio 2016 games kick off on Aug. 5.

If you want to PLAN A SCHOOL VISIT, need a Speaker for an upcoming event or SCHEDULE any other book talk: write "REQUESTING AUTHOR" in the subjct of your message. (That’s how the cool kids do it!) I can also be reached through my publicist with Little, Brown Books [email protected]

If you’re a teacher, parent or student with any other type of question or comment: write “ASK THE AUTHOR.” That will help me distinguish it from all the other less fun emails.
