Welcome to my website!
I’m glad you’re here. I’d make you a fabulous latte or a nice hot cup of tea, but I’m afraid we’ll just have to use our imagination. Which, as a children’s author and perpetual daydreamer, I do a lot.
I’m a former elementary school counselor turned full-time author, as well an avid reader (middle-grade novels are a favorite), animal lover (woodland creatures, if you want to get specific), rock collector, consumer of all things chocolate, and mother of three grown book-loving boys. I have two “office assistants” who don’t type or answer the phone, but who do keep me company in exchange for biscuits and long walks.
I’m lucky to have a job I can do anywhere there’s Internet service and a post office, so I have two places I call “home” — O’Fallon, MO, and Northport, MI. I travel often for author visits, conferences, and writing workshops, sometimes in my pajamas. But only if I’m doing an author visit on Skype!
My newest book is BIG RED AND THE LITTLE BITTY WOLF: A Story About Bullying. To read more about the book and get a sample, visit maginationpress.org.

Thanks for stopping by!
