I am beyond excited to share my debut middle grade novel, Maggie and Abby’s Neverending Pillow Fort, from HarperCollins Children’s, and announce the sequel coming early summer 2019!
Maggie and Abby’s Neverending Pillow Fort is a story of best friends, bruised egos, secret societies, guacamole lasagna, and–jazz hands!–magically linked-up pillow forts.

Six. Weeks. That’s how long Maggie’s been waiting for her best friend and partner in crime, Abby, to come home from Camp Cantaloupe. Half of summer break may have been lost, but Abby is finally heading back! Only when Abby arrives, she’s. . . different. She doesn’t want to play any of their usual epic spy games. All New Abby wants to do is talk about camp things and plan campy activities—she even has the nerve to call Maggie’s massive, award-worthy pillow fort a “cabin.”
But at least Abby’s excited to build a “cabin” of her own. And when Maggie discovers that a pillow in the back of her fort mysteriously leads right into Abby’s new one, the two friends are suddenly just an arm’s length away. Soon they’re adding links and building more forts, until Maggie looks behind one pillow too many and finds herself face to face with. . . the authorities. Turns out their little pillow fort network isn’t the first to exist. It’s not even the second, or third, or hundredth. A massive network of linked-up pillow and sofa forts already spans the globe, and the kids who run it are not happy with Maggie and Abby. And they are not fooling around.
With just three days to pass the North American Founding and Allied Forts Alliance’s outrageous entrance tests or lose the links forever, Maggie and Abby pull out all the stops to try to save their network. But the kids on NAFAFA’s Council have their own agenda, and it just so happens Maggie’s fort might actually hold the key to a mystery that’s gone unanswered for generations. There’s only a little bit of summer left to burn, and Maggie and Abby are determined to win back their pillow fort freedom. But can their friendship—and their scrappy homemade network—survive the mission?
