My prized childhood possessions were a butterfly trapper keeper full of stories, an overflowing bookshelf, and a pocket thesaurus. But it took many years (and a couple careers) before I pursued my dream of writing for children.
A lover of puns and wordplay, I enjoy mixing humor, heart, and educational details into my writing. My picture book, A PENNY’S WORTH (Page Street Kids), illustrated by Mark Hoffman, is out now. The sequel, A DOLLAR'S GRAND DREAM, hits shelves in 2023!
When not writing, I spend time visiting schools, volunteering with literacy nonprofits, playing tennis, and perfecting my Frog Pose in yoga class. I currently live in Charlotte, NC, with my husband and two daughters.
Even though my trapper keeper is long gone, my book collection continues to multiply, and my thesaurus…
Now, there’s an app for that!
