My new YA is topsecret & super marvelous (literally) I’ll give you just 2 words- & the birth of a new hashtag- #MarvelYA

This is the hardest secret I’ve ever had to keep in my life.

it’s the most fun research I’ve ever gotten to do- every day my homework is pure joy.  I’ve made two Marvel games – Spiderman and FantasticFour. So a #MarvelYA is like coming full circle for me, and I couldn’t be happier.

Follow me here (Twitter & Facebook) for upcoming details on my TOP SECRET #MARVELYA. Because #Nerdgirls RULE!

In Defense of YA

Have you read the article in Slate about YA, “Against YA: Adults Should be Embarrassed to Read Young Adult Books”? I won’t link to it in an attempt to avoid giving it any more page views. What I will do is post this amazing rebuttal from Heather Hogan on After Ellen:

“Malinda Lo’s Ash was a time-machine balm to the 12-year-old lesbian cinderella inside me.The Golden Compass gave me closure from leaving behind my back-woods religious upbringing. Graceling validated my gender experience. The Chronicles of Narnia (ironically) fanned into flame my beaten-down feminist longings. A Wrinkle in Time sharpened my understanding of global politics. And The Hobbit made me brave enough to leave the only home I’d ever known.”
