Writer to Reader: About My Young Adult Novels
My four YA novels are inter-connected, although each one stands on its own. Abby, the main character in West Against the Wind, is an ancestor of Molly, from Fire in the Heart. Molly’s brother, Todd, is the main protagonist in Twelve Days in August. Blue Coyote continues Alex Beekman’s story, which started with Twelve Days in August.
I'd be interested to hear from any of you who dealt with situations similar to those that confront Todd and Alex in the third and fourth novels. Have you encountered prejudice, unfair teasing, or cruelty among your peers? How have you responded? Are there people (either adults or other friends) who have helped you?
