I create stories from the heart and about life’s most important moments and most unpredictable struggles. I am an educator with a passion for literacy. I’ve been empowering kids using books and words for almost 25 years.
I’ve been a participant in Slice of Life 30 Day Writing Challenge, Kids’ Lit Writing Contest, and #PBPitch. I’m also a member of SCBWI and my weekly writers’ critique group.
Besides writing, I enjoy entertaining a room with a mouthful of stories, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, doing Pilates and reading & writing.
My biggest accomplishment to date has been the creation of three humans-Benjamin, Abigail, and Magdalyn. Together with their dad, Mike, we navigate a world according to two teenagers and a sassy third child.
