ABOUT THE BOOK
Life for Peg Bowman is rough in the infamous slums of Five Points, New York, but her brother's murder changes everything.

My dear Dragons, today I am proud to present author Deanna Fugett, who is with us today to share with us about her writing process, in celebration of her debut novel, Ending Fear's, release!

Some exciting things have happened this summer, such as getting my driver's permit (AAAACK) and attending SoCalCWC (😍SQUEEEEE😍) and having one of my besties (LOVE YA, D…
