I grew up in San Francisco, but now live in an adobe house on the banks of the Rio Grande with my husband and sons. I think I've drunk so much Land of Enchantment water that some of that ancient magic got into my blood and now spurts out my pencil--I mean ergonomic keyboard. I adore Louisiana, Paris, Bulgaria, England, Scotland, Egypt, and anything old and musty with a secret story to tell. I make way too many cookies when I'm writing or revising a new book - and I've got the best book trailers in the universe - for reals! Check them out here: www.kimberleygriffithslittle.com.

Twelve-year-old
BFF’s Ginnie and Tillie, want to be sisters. Ginnie's widowed dad plus
Tillie's divorced mom could equal a lifetime of round-the-clock girl
talk and slumber parties. Too bad Dad vowed to never marry again. Ginnie and Tillie form a secret club and come up with the perfect mission to change his mind: ‘Operation Secret Sisters’.
Before long, Tillie seems happier about gaining a dad than a sister. Ginnie
suspects that Tillie has turned ‘Operation Secret Sisters’ into a scam
called ‘Operation Steal My Dad.’  Things get more complicated when
Ginnie stumbles across her real mom’s hidden journals. Ginnie can
finally get to know the mother she doesn’t remember and Dad doesn’t talk about.

When Dad discovers she has the journals, he takes them away. Ginnie needs to figure out what the big mystery is before her relationship with her father and her best friend are ruined forever.

TROUBLE BLOWS WEST: A Ginnie West Adventure (BOOK 2)
Blurb:
Putting
 her body in motion before her brain is in gear creates a mountain of
problems for 12 year-old Ginnie West. She is certain that defending her
twin brother, Toran, from the biggest bully in sixth grade was the right
 thing to do. But Ginnie couldn’t be more wrong.

She
 quickly figures out that Toran doesn’t appreciate being rescued by a
girl any better than Charlie likes being knocked down by one. When
Charlie seeks revenge on Ginnie, Toran sets aside his anger and helps
her plot a playback prank at Charlie’s house.

Sadly,
 Ginnie learns that Charlie has a reason for being a bully when she sees
 his dad drop him to the floor like a ragdoll with one awful blow to the
 chest. Realizing he's a boy in big trouble, Ginnie switches gears and
decides to be his ally, even if he won’t let her be his friend.

Twelve
 year-old Ginnie and her BFF, Tillie, schemed to get Ginnie’s widowed
dad to fall in love with Tillie’s divorced mom. It worked. But before
they could become ‘for real’ sisters, Ginnie stumbled across her dead
mom’s journals. Which was
totally awesome sauce… until her dad took them away and won’t tell her why. Now all their plans are starting to unravel.

If
 that’s not bad enough, Ginnie’s favorite uncle drops the mother of all
bombshells and leaves her in a maze of uncertainty. While her head is
still spinning from that news,  a blast from her late mother’s past
shows up and makes Tillie goes nutburgers. Ginnie realizes her best
friend has her own agenda and Tillie’s plans to merge their families may
 not be so innocent.

SIMPLY
 WEST OF HEAVEN is a contemporary MG novel that follows Ginnie West as
she tries to make sense of one too many curve balls tossed her way in
the most pivotal summer of her life.
