Publisher's Weekly Review - 5/18/20

"The combination of delicious treats and tantalizing delay keeps the tension high, and the cooperative kitchen antics of LouAnn’s guests as they attempt to redress their wrongs...deliver as much satisfaction as the new doughnuts themselves."

The Virginian-Pilot: "3 Sweet Books about Comfort and Compassion" - 5/22/20

Washington Independent Review of Books - 7/27/20

"Kids will enjoy the clever rhymes so much they won’t suspect they’re getting a math lesson in the process."

Librarian's Quest - 7/28/20

Providence Journal - 8/27/20

"Perfect for reading aloud with a treat on the side."

About

I've been reading children's books all my life and I'm delighted that now I get to write them, too!

 

My debut picture book, Dozens of Doughnuts, illustrated by Brianne Farley, will be published by Putnam in summer, 2020. And I'm thrilled to share two more in the works: Don't Hug Doug, illustrated by Daniel Wiseman, coming from Putnam in spring, 2021; and Hurry, Little Tortoise! illustrated by Erin Balzer, coming from Random House in summer, 2022.

I also write poems, stories, and articles for children's magazines like Babybug, Ladybug, High Five, and Highlights.
