Get in touch

I had the privilege of growing up caring for cats, dogs, and horses. One pony was especially skittish (and a little cranky), but her personality taught me lots about looking for the silver lining. My picture books percolate from family-told tales and memorable experiences, but mostly from wonderings about connecting, determination, acceptance, and righting wrongs.

My mission is to craft compelling light-hearted stories that touch the hearts and minds of children. My vision is to add books that provide fun read alouds, teachable moments, and potential curricular connections.

I currently serve as the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Wisconsin Webinar Coordinator. I am a member of the International Literacy Association (ILA), the Wisconsin State Reading Association (WSRA), and the 12 X 12 Picture Book Challenge, the Storyteller Academy, and several amazing picture book critique groups.
