The young adult market can be tricky. Just as adolescents walk a tightrope between childhood and adulthood, so must the writing. The opportunity to write for this market came several years ago through a chance meeting with the editor-in-chief of Chelsea House Publishers.
She offered me a juicy project: Ghengis Khan! I've since written eight books for Chelsea, which have given me the chance to combine my love of history with writing for inquisitive young people.
