Susan Vaught covers a lot of territory as a writer. First she successfully wrote YA novels for years—including a doorstopper fantasy in two parts co-authored with her son, JB Redmond. Then she branched (under a pseudonym) into adult romance. Then she decided to try middle-grade, to much success. And now, we are very happy to announce her first picture book is underway!

TOGETHER WE GROW is a lyrical text about overcoming hard times by joining in community. Susan's middle-grade home, Paula Wiseman Books at S&S, and editor Sylvie Frank brought it on board, matching it with illustrator Kelly Murphy. If I'm counting right, this will be the tenth time her illustrations will grace a book written by an EMLA author!

Huge congratulations, Susan!
