Hi! Deb Gonzales here.

I create quality, affordable, project-specific, supplemental materials connecting people with literature. As an educator and fellow author, I am skilled in navigating the needs of the educational and literary worlds.

The intent of this website is to showcase the incredible projects I've been privileged to participate in. Please contact me if you have any questions or desire to discuss a project you'd like to partner with. 

My debut picture book Girls with Guts: The Road to Breaking Barriers and Bashing Records (Charlesbridge, 2019) is the tenacious history of the female athlete from the first Olympic Games to present day, including the passage of Title IX.

A Tiny Piece of Sky

Author: Shawn Stout

Publisher: Philomel Books

Synopsis: World War II is coming in Europe. At least that's what Frankie Baum heard on the radio. But from her small town in Maryland, in the wilting summer heat of 1939, the war is a world away.
Besides, there are too many other things to think about: first that Frankie's father up and bought a restaurant without telling anyone and now she has to help in the kitchen, peeling potatoes and washing dishes, when she d rather be racing to Wexler's Five and Dime on her skates. Plus her favorite sister, Joanie Baloney, is away for the summer and hasn t been answering any of Frankie's letters.
But when some people in town start accusing her father of being a German spy, suddenly the war arrives at Frankie's feet and she can think of nothing else.
Could the rumors be true? Frankie must do some spying of her own to try to figure out her father's secrets and clear his good name. What she discovers about him surprises everyone but is nothing compared to what she discovers about the world.
