Anyone who's visited this Website lately might wonder why I haven't updated it in a few months. The reason is that I've been working hard on a number of exciting projects. I've got two picture books in the works, as well as one middle grade/YA biography. As soon as they are on their way to the printer, I'll spill some details here. One is oh-so-close, so look for an announcement, hopefully, at the beginning of the new year. Happy holidays to all.

My first book, A Whole New Ball Game: The Story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, certainly has had staying power. Every year, I get e-mails from students who have used the book for papers and History Day projects about the league. This year, I even was contacted by a community college professor who wanted to use it as a text in one of his classes, which is how I learned that the book was officially out of print.
Fortunately, technology has advanced to the point that out-of-print books can enjoy new life without the commitment of storing stacks of volumes in a warehouse. So as of this month, A Whole New Ball Game is once again available—as an eBook. And later this year you will be able to purchase it through print-on-demand, so anyone who wants a physical book can get one.
If you're interested in the eBook, click HERE to open up Ball Game's page on the publisher's Web site. You can choose your eReader from the drop-down menu and go from there.

Twenty years ago, when I published my first book (A Whole New Ball Game), very few people were writing about girls or women in sports. Things have changed so much that today, there's a blog dedicated to "sporty" books for girls. Launched in April 2013, Sporty Girl Books is packed with book lists, author interviews, contests, and news about girl athletes. I'm pleased that I'll be featured in an interview on the blog on August 20. So check it out.
