Junior Library Guild Selection
for "Into the Dangerous World"
American Book Award for "Redemption"
This is where you’ll learn all about my books (Into the Dangerous World, Deadly, and Redemption), and about me and my family. My husband, the artist Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, has illustrated two of my books, and together, we are building a tiny home. Stay awhile! Click on the links to learn about my novels, my writing classes, to request an author visit, or to download a school guide. Contact me to let me know about you, or to answer any questions (I don't bite! I have many weird facts at my disposal. I do write historical fiction, after all!)
Author visit to the Hewitt School: "It was a wonderful visit! Hope we can stay on your calendar for next year!" Letter from an educator: "I'm a middle school teacher in Orlando, FL. My students and I are huge fans of yours! Our 7th grade ELA team has been reading and teaching your novel Deadly for three years in a row now. We've built up a huge unit with your novel. Just wanted to let you know that and a huge thank you for inspiring teens to read and enjoy historical fiction! Best regards!"
H.H., Andover school: "Thanks @juliechibbaro for an amazing Skype call today with our students!" J. Clark, teacher:"I just finished reading Into the Dangerous World, and I loved it! The perfect mix of loss and figuring out who you are in the world coupled with perseverance and yearning to belong. The art throughout really allowed you to live inside Ror's head. I can't wait to share it with my students."
