...............................children's writer

I’ve been reading children’s books all my life, and I’m delighted that now I get to write them, too. I write a variety of forms, and my poems and stories have been published in Babybug, Ladybug, High Five, and Highlights magazines.

In addition to my own stories, I also do work-for-hire writing, both fiction and non-fiction. My work has appeared in educational products published by Sadlier School, Scholastic, Hampton-Brown, and Scientific Learning.

I am a member of the SCBWI and Poets’ Garage, an online critique group for children’s poets. I am represented by Jennifer Starkman of the Transatlantic Agency.

I hang out on my blog Storypatch on a semi-regular basis, so please stop by!
