Bookable Space with Sharon Skinner

Season 1, Ep. 15

Hosted by Yvonne Battle-Felton, this episode of Bookable Space features Sharon Skinner reading from Lostuns Found.

About the book: The smoke-covered, steam-powered city of Landings is a rough place where orphans and lost children known as streeters struggle to survive by banding together, forming rival crews. But when their fellow streeters begin to disappear, Gage and Wynd must put aside their long-standing rivalry and work together to rescue their mates from a crew of ruthless, kidnapping smugglers. But can a pact made under pressure be trusted? 

Written with a wink and a nod to JM Barrie and Charles Dickens, Lostuns Found is a story of losing and finding family and what it really means to belong.

She serves as Regional Advisor for Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Arizona, and co-hosts the Coaching KidLit podcast with Christy Yaros. A proud veteran, Sharon was among the first women crewmembers assigned aboard a US Navy ship.
