Welcome to My Website
Whether you landed here by choice or by chance, I’m glad you stopped by. I’m a children’s author and former elementary school counselor from St. Louis, Missouri. When I’m not writing books, I visit schools and speak at conferences. (I also love to read, spend time with my family, and hang out with my “office assistants,” Luke and Nemo, aka the Biscuit Brothers.) I travel wherever I’m invited, and currently still have some dates available for the 2013-2014 school year. If you’re interested in learning more about my author visits and presentations, click the Author Visits links above.
If you’d like to know more about my books and my background, I invite you to look around my site and check out my blog. I welcome your questions and comments. Teachers, please feel free to contact me with questions from your students. I’ve found that kids often ask the best questions, and will be posting some of my favorites from past school visits in my blog. Look for them in the “Inquiring Young Minds” category (coming soon!). In the near future, I’ll be adding free reproducibles and lesson ideas to use in conjunction with my books. Check back soon, or send me an email and I’ll let you know when I’ve added materials.
