ANNOUNCEMENT: ParaNorthern Book Deal

I have been waiting for what feels like an eternity to finally be able to talk about this upcoming project of mine. It was the first story I ever really set out to really complete and make happen, and over the years it’s grown so much from what it originally was into this story that I’m so incredibly proud of. I’m beyond excited to see come into this world.

From the announcement in Publisher’s Weekly:

Lily Kessinger at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers has acquired ParaNorthern, a middle grade graphic novel written by Stephanie Cooke (that’s me!!!!), with art by Mari Costa.

In ParaNorthern, a witch named Abby and her three friends—a wolf-girl, a ghost, and a pumpkinhead—band together to try and save their supernatural town, North Haven, from an invasion of rabid (but adorable!) chaos bunnies.

ParaNorthern is planned for release from HMH Kids in Spring 2021.

A sneak peek of Abby (the adorable one with the broom) and her friends!
