My current work in progress (WIP) is a contemporary middle grade novel like my debut.
Main character Maya is a Daddy’s girl, just like me. And in Maya’s world, everything goes like she plans. Except when it doesn’t….
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MAYA
Maya J. Jenkins leaves nothing to chance. Even the daily spins on her handmade Wheel of Fortune land exactly where she puts them. She avoids improvising, preferring to play it safe, and usually plans her way to success with school, friends, and sports.
All of that seemed to change by the end of the school year when almost nothing went her way. Maya vowed to make up for it by having a perfect summer. She had it all figured out – even down to winning MVP in her soccer camp.
Just as summer begins, her parents announce a trial separation. In a summer of surprise, Maya learns to take risks, embrace change, and understand that love and family don’t always fit in a neat box.
