Welcome to the Family, the Middle Grade Mafia

The mission of the Middle Grade Mafia is to provide a refuge, a klatch, for established and aspiring middle grade authors. The purpose of the site is to share knowledge, inspire each other, and celebrate good news. Writing can be a lonely endeavor, but when you are part of a family, you are never alone. Please join in the conversation, share good news or recommend great books. Hopefully, all of you will get an offer you can't refuse (get published). :)
