I was born and raised as the middle child of five in Maryland. As children, we always created fantasy scenarios and played! Many of these memories inspire the stories I write. I now live and play in New York with my two babies, husband, and silly dog. When I am not writing for kids, or teaching kids, I am chasing around my own kids, cooking without a recipe, painting outside the lines, or embarking on adventures in and out of books.
I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. For inquiries about speaking, presentations, workshops, or school visits, please see the author visit page and contact me to schedule a visit!
