Hello, and welcome to my writing world!
My first novel, Prisoner 88, is available now. A ten-year-old in prison? This middle grade historical novel is set at the Idaho Penitentiary in 1885.
Prisoner 88, an Indies Next List pick, was chosen for the 2013 list of Notable Children's Books in the Language Arts by the NCTE. It is on the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award (DCF) 2014-2015 Master List (Vermont) and the 2016 Nebraska Golden Sower Award List (in the YA catagory). It is also on the Arkansas Charlie May Simon Reading List for the 2015/2016 school year.
My first nonfiction book, How to Design a World-Class Engineering College: A History of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University is also available.
For non-boring nonfiction, try my blog, A Wonder-filled Life, at leahpileggi.blogspot.com
Also, I'll be writing features for Carnegie Mellon's Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
