One day, when she was reading a book out loud to her kids, a thought flashed through her mind: Wouldn't it be cool to have a novel about four third graders who time traveled and visited famous people in American history? She had never written a book before, and yet, knew she needed to write this one. Her best friend, Rhody Cohon, came on board to help make the dream come true. From there, BLAST TO THE PAST was born.  Eight BLAST books later, new projects continued to come her way, each one more fun and exciting than the next.  Now, after ten years and 10,000 hours of writing, she looks back over what she has accomplished and can only say one thing: Wow!

It's the night that all the sixth-graders at Hamilton Middle School have been waiting for: the annual overnight field trip to the local science museum and planetarium. Best friends Nate and Connor come bearing treats and, unknowingly, tricks in the form of a spooky old book called Tales from the Scaremaster. When Nate and Connor crack open the candy to share with their friends, they also crack open the book, and are shocked to find that it writes back. Pretty soon, creepy things start happening at the museum --- ghostly sightings, possessed dioramas that the kids swear are moving, and scary noises and movements at every turn.
