I write fiction and fiction-informational picture books, middle grade and young adult novels that I’m actively seeking representation for. I’m a longtime member of SCBWI  where I volunteer my time at regional conferences. I’m a member of Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Picture Book Challenge, a participant in the recent Picture Book Summit  and an active member of a twice monthly critique group. I love  introducing kids to new places and people from my own experiences, and stories they’ll want to read over, and over again.
