Great! Now, here’s the fun “About Me” stuff:

The first time I laughed out loud at a chapter bookΒ was in first grade. I haven’t stopped reading and writing since.

After two years of teaching elementary school and admittedly spending WAY too much time reading with the kids (I just couldn’t stop. I absolutely couldn’t.) I decided to teach them differently.

Now, IΒ write books for kids & I teach them to write books for themselves. (There’s nothing better in this whole, beautiful world than spreading the joy of reading!)

My job is simply, profoundly this: to gift young readers with good books & a passion for creativity.

If you are interested in a creative writing workshop for your students (grades 3-5 or 6-8), please find more information here.
