New school year, new novel!

Woodstock Pro Pic



I am a huge fan of music in general.  I especially love rock music, and I basically worship legendary 1960s guitar and songwriting genius Jimi Hendrix.  Here I am, playing the “Jimi Hendrix Chord” — that’s an E7#9 for all you guitar gurus out there — on my current favorite guitar, a Stratocaster similar to the one Jimi played at Woodstock.  Which is no coincidence, because my NEW NOVEL, Are You Experienced?, which comes out on September 3, is about Woodstock.  And Jimi Hendrix … and his guitar … and that magical E7#9 chord.  Plus a whole lot of other really cosmic stuff, maaaannnn.  I am really excited about this one.  In the words of one reviewer, “This provocative, personal peek at legendary Woodstock rocks.”  Hey, if you say so, dude!

  1. Mazel tov on your new book! I can’t wait to read ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? I have been recommending all of your books to all of my private teenage writing students. You are one of my all-time favorite YA writers. I write YA myself, and you have unknowingly become a mentor to me as I finish my final revisions on my current W-i-P. THANK YOU.
