Happy Memorial Day

For my Dad, who sailed around the world with the Navy. For my uncle, who served in Vietnam. For my Grandfather, who served in France in WWII. And for my brother, who is spending this weekend with the Army Reserve. Thank you!

As writers, we explore the human potential to sacrifice for others. We describe worlds created by people who were willing to give everything to make those worlds better and to keep them safe and free. I hope I can always do this with the proper respect and awe.

Well said, Kate.
Now, I'm curious .. are there MG and YA novels where the children are waiting for their father or mother who serve in the US Army to come home ?
