I’ve sold a new novel!
From Publisher’s Weekly:
Stacey Barney at G.P. Putnam’s Sons has acquired world rights to Caroline Starr Rose’s MIRACULOUS, a historical middle grade novel starring Jack and Cora, who learn that it takes more than faith in a charlatan doctor and the magic of his medicine show tonic to fix things that are broken. Tracey Adams at Adams Literary negotiated the deal. Publication is planned for Spring 2020.
This idea has been brewing for years. It started with a visit to a museum in St. Louis, when I sat in on a lecture on medical quacks. Fascinating! MIRACULOUS is about wounds and secrets and belief and power and persuasion and community.
Excited about this one! Wish me luck as I tackle the good work ahead.
I took this picture last summer at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Kansas homestead site and rediscovered it this morning. Perfect, isn’t it?
