Very excited that The Secret of Othello is one the final nominations list for the American Library Rainbow List! The list features many amazing stories for LGTBQ and straight readers of all ages. I’m personally excited to see Kristin Cashore, Julie Ann Peters, Leslea Newman, Jennifer Lavoie and Liz Hand on the list.
Also listed is The Boys of Summer, which includes a Fisher Key story about Sean Garrity and a summer romance with a troubled boy. Chronologically it takes place the summer before Mystery of the Tempest. I had a lot of fun writing Sean in his own story.
The final list will be announced in January at the ALA Midwinter Conference. They discuss the works there, and I’d love to be a fly on the wall – well, not really, it would make me very nervous 🙂
