About

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

 

I write picture books about friendship, sharing, doughnuts, and math (Dozens of Doughnuts, illustrated by Brianne Farley), books about consent and asking for a hug (Don't Hug Doug, illustrated by Daniel Wiseman), books about sisters (Lulu & Zoey, illustrated by Brittany Jackson), books about trying your hardest to be on time (Hurry, Little Tortoise! illustrated by Erin Kraan), and books that I can't even tell you about yet!

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