The Keepers

The Box and the Dragonfly cover reveal!


I’m so thrilled to reveal the stunning cover for The Box and the Dragonfly, featuring artwork by the incredibly talented Iacopo Bruno. The Box and the Dragonfly is Book 1 in my debut middle-grade series The Keepers, forthcoming from HarperCollins Children’s Books on March 3, 2015.

I can’t say how exciting it is to see Horace and Chloe–not to mention the mysterious House of Answers–brought to life by such an amazing artist. I feel so lucky that Iacopo is doing all the covers, and some interior artwork, for the series. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next, and can’t wait to see the final book when it drops on 3/3/15.


Mixing science, magic, and metaphysics, The Keepers follows Horace Andrews and his friends, who gain unique powers after discovering and bonding to a variety of mysterious artifacts called Tan’ji. In Book 1, The Box and the Dragonfly, Horace finds a box that opens surprising new doors and grants him unimagined abilities. Soon after, he joins forces with Chloe, another young Keeper, and together the two of them are drawn into a secret, centuries-old conflict that connects to both the roots and fate of humankind.

Stay tuned here for more news, and be on the look out for The Keepers when it launches in March 2015 from HarperCollins Children’s Books (US) and Hot Key Books (UK).
