We're the Renegades of Middle Grade. We started off as a group of writer friends and, as new friends have been introduced to the others, there are now thirty-two of us. We love writing books for young readers and think that if you like any one of us, the odds are pretty good that you're going to like the others. We also know that if you love books, you're always looking to find out about more of them.  A great place to start is here on the shelf. Each of us has selected one of our books so that you can get to know us better. Just click on a cover to find out more. Happy Reading!
