Young Adult Books/Expert Profile

Expertise

I can make recommendations based on previous books read. I will not answer homework questions along the lines of "What is the theme of this book?" or "How should I write my essay about the relationship between these two characters on structuralist terms?" While I might recommend adult novels for YA readers if I find them appropriate, I can't be relied on to answer questions or recommend only adult titles. I'm happy to try and find a book you read long ago if you can give me any details or clues about it. I can also provide teachers/librarians/other professionals who work with children and young adults with recommended titles based on curriculum needs.

Experience in the area

I have reviewed books for years, mostly at BookReporter.com, TeenReads.com, and KidsReads.com. I am doing graduate level work on this subject and also consider it a personal hobby.

Organizations

American Library Association, Young Adult Library Services Association, American Association of School Librarians, Association of Library Service to Children.

Publications

Arizona Jewish Post, VOYA magazine, the Arizona Daily Star

Education/Credentials

I have a BA in creative writing with minors in music and Spanish. Currently I am at work on an MA in children's literature and an MS in library science.
