I've been having a super busy and emotional few weeks that I almost forgot to mention I have a new book out. KATE WARNE, PINKERTON DETECTIVE written by Marissa Moss and illustrated by yours truly is out in the world now! Happy reading, everyone!

A wonderful Kirkus review for KATE WARNE, PINKERTON DETECTIVE, out this May!

"There is double-dealing and spying and subterfuge, close calls and traps and brain work, melding the story into a thriller and highlighting the talents and qualities that a woman brings to what is misconceived as a man’s job. Moss has picked a special moment in time as well as a special woman, spelled out in an author’s note: Pinkerton’s beginnings marked the turning of detective work to professionals. In Chu’s sepia-toned illustrations, Warne wears a determined expression, matched by the scowls of the villains, which recall such great historical yarns as The Great Train Robbery.

A cinematic treatment of derring-do and yet another testament to the importance of women in the historical evolution of the United States."
