It’s been an incredible first year for The Babysitter: My Summers with a Serial Killer. Conceived in 2005 and birthed in 2021, she has exceeded our expectations and despite these uncertain times is faring well out in the world. 

In these final days of 2021 (how did that happen?) we’d like to say how grateful we are to ALL of you, our friends and readers, for your unwavering support. Collaboration is at the heart of this book and that collaboration extends to all of you, as well. Thank you. 

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2022! And remember, the paperback launches (hopefully with an in-person reading and celebration) at East End Books in Provincetown on June 14, 2022.
