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.
