BOUND, Bodach Books 2018 -- my first contemporary young-adult novel! 


Set in Pullman, WA (home of Washington State University--Go Cougs!) where I lived and studied for fourteen years. 

Seventeen-year-old Rebecca Joshi, an adopted girl from India, burn survivor, and primary caretaker of her intellectually disabled sister, Joy, has one dream—to be a physician. Her traditional Indian father relies upon Rebecca to care for Joy while he buries himself in work to drown his grief over his wife’s death. Leaving home is the only way Rebecca can envision reaching her goal. She helps Joy develop greater independence, and is devastated when Joy becomes pregnant. Rebecca tussles—with her father and with herself—over who is responsible for Joy and her baby. When Rebecca discovers the truth of what happened the day she was burned, she struggles to hold onto her dream while wrestling with questions of life, love, and responsibility.

TEN EASTER EGGS, Cartwheel (Scholastic) 2015 -- my first trade book!  

Watch each Easter egg hatch as you count down from 10!

Ten eggs.     All is quiet. Not a peep.

Nine eggs.    One chick hatches. "Cheep, cheep, cheep."

In this sweet story, clever die-cuts, touchable plastic pieces, and fuzzy flocking all come together in a rhyming adventure all about Easter traditions. Follow and count along as ten quiet Easter eggs become ten colorful chicks ready to celebrate the holiday! A fun, engaging novelty story just right for the littlest of readers.
