I've been very remiss about keeping up with my blog posts. Where to start?

Spring and summer were spent working on my new book, just published this fall, When I Die, my first non fiction book, my first picture book, and my first book with my daughter-in-law, Bonnie Brask, who did all the photographs.

And that wasn't the only collaboration I worked on over the summer. My writing partner, Perry Nodelman, and I worked together to reissue Of Two Minds, the first book in our four-book fantasy series, with Starburst Publications. Perry's son Asa did the cover and I really love it. For anyone out there who likes fantasy check it out.

Speaking of reissues, Scholastic Canada reissued two books very near and dear to me: Greater Than Angels, a Holocaust book set in France, and In My Enemy's House, another Holocaust book, this one set in Germany.

And just a few days ago,Scholastic reissued The Lost Locket, a novel for grades 2-4.

Meanwhile, I'm working on a historical novel set in Arizona in 1882.
And, Fictive Press is reissuing my New Adult novel, Past Crimes- as the first of a new and hopefully very exciting series called Palm Springs Supernatural

When I Die No. 34 on the Amazon Best Sellers List for Teen Health

No. 34 in the top 100 Amazon's Best Sellers list for Teen Health!  A meditation on death for children and their families, Carol's newest book and her first non-fiction, When I Die is a short picture book. Not everyone "gets" this book, but one reader certainly did, calling her review "Tiny Book, Huge Impact".

Since it is a picture book, illustrated with beautiful photos by Carol's daughter-in-law Bonnie Brask, I highly recommend getting the book in print. Its impact will be all the greater, especially if you are reading this book to a child.
