My life has been, and continues to be, so much fun!


I'm a Mom and a Nana.


I'm married to my best friend.


Through my years of membership in SCBWI, I've met some amazing writers and illustrators and have wonderful, treasured, talented friends all over the world.


I've published four novels for young readers.


My essays have aired on public radio and appeared in Writer's Digest and The Writer.


I've worked as a janitor, an activities director, a newspaper reporter, and as a Chamber of Commerce membership director. Currently, I work for county government.


I love books and libraries and good stories of all kinds.


I'm a fan of Mr. Rogers, Jim Henson, and Weird Al Yankovic.


When I want a good laugh, I turn to groan-worthy puns, cat memes, cat videos, Jimmy Fallon, or Seth Myers.


I also love a good cheeseburger - and avocado toast.
