"As a fan of this series, one thing that I really appreciate is how each successive book has its own unique atmosphere to it. This is appropriately accurate of growing up in general, as each year up the scholastic ladder reveals new outlooks on life, new teachers, new friends, new challenges. It's difficult enough to capture the mindset of a child but to also show the perspective of a child that is growing older is even more difficult. McHugh does this in fine fashion and is clearly devoted to Darla, putting in the work to show how much she has grown from those first pages in which she was born into our awareness as readers." C.

About the Author
EDITOR: Growing up I was the kid who would get into trouble for reading in class. My family was the one at the restaurant with noses buried in books. It was only natural that I would seek some way to make books a part of my career path. In March of 2014 I graduated from Portland State University with a MS in Technical Writing and Book Publishing. During my program I spent time as Acquisitions Manager and Project Manager with Ooligan Press, a student-run publishing house that is part of the graduate program. Since my graduation, I've started my own small business, taken over ownership of Portland Book Review, and worked as Project Manager at Spectacle Publishing Media Group before arriving here at Evolved Publishing. I read anything except for traditional westerns, and have a soft spot for historical fiction and YA. I tend to gravitate towards genre fiction (particularly science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure and all of the implied subgenres) and am a huge fan of comics and graphic novels. When I'm not reading or writing, I'm probably playing video games with my friends online. While I enjoy writing my own fiction on occasion, my greatest joy is helping fellow writers achieve their dream of publishing their work. I look forward to working with Evolved Publishing and making those dreams into reality.
