Her work encompasses comprehension and word attack skills and the integration of writing and reading at all grade levels.  Her most recent books are Essentially M, a memoir for upper elementary and middle school students that focuses on how she approaches writing, and Caught in the Spell of Writing and Reading: Grade 3 and Beyond, written with Terry Young and colleagues from the United States and Australia.
