Read full description of the books:
""When I look in the mirror, I don't know who I am."" ?Kerri Being a teenager in today's complex world is a difficult enough task, but adopted teens have a unique struggle: to discover their identity and a sense of belonging and place in the world, which often means coming to terms with their past. "The Face in the Mirror," based on numerous interviews with adopted teens, adoptive parents, and birth parents, brings attention to the growing and often controversial phenomenon of teenagers wanting to know where they came from. The book, written for both teenagers and adults, is a frank discussion of the issues surrounding adoption, and in particular what adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth parents should know when adopted teens want to discover their past. The book also addresses the impact of cross-cultural or cross-racial adoption, as well as the legal parameters of adoption in the US and Canada, including the complex emotions involved. As written by Marion Crook, an adoptive parent herself and the author of previous books about teens, "The Face in the Mirror" articulates the complexity of adoption issues with candor and compassion.

Read information about the authorThere is nothing as exciting as a new book, fresh from the publisher's with my name on the front cover. I take about an hour to bask in the pleasure of the finished product before I have to grind down to the next project. Twenty copies of "Thicker Than Blood: Adoptive parenting in the modern world" arrived last week and flew out to all those wonderful people who so generously gave their time and expertise to help me in the writing process.
I've lost track, but I think it is my 28th trade published book.
My 29th (do third editions count as a new book?) is "Writing for Children and Young Adults" released in September 2016 as both a hard copy book and an ebook.
My three book adult cozy mystery series with Dr. Cathy MacNab, my veterinarian sleuth Paige Wheeler at Creative Media. She also has the first of cozy mysteries set in England. I'm off to Cornwall to research the second in this series.
Life is very busy.
