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 New  England  where I volunteer my time at regularly at 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’m also the founder of One Book at a Time, FB/ @only1book, a local book donation program for The Center for Domestic Abuse. I love to introduce kids to places and people from my own life experiences to help them understand themselves and their world.
