Welcome to my page!


I have been writing for kids since I was a kid! It all started in elementary school when my grandmother bought me a journal. The cover said Write Your Own Book! So I did.


I wrote poems, short stories, and a ten page novel. My mom thought they were pretty good, so I kept at it.


As a grownup, I decided to pursue my dreams of publication and received my master's degree in writing for children and young adults.

When I'm not typing feverishly at my keyboard, you can find me drinking way too many latte's, hiking, or curled up on the couch with a good book.
