Have you ever been told you’d make a great vampire because you’re tall and your teeth are sharp? I have…by one of my former students!

Nothing scares me. I’ve taught elementary school for over 30 years. I especially love bringing kids and quality literature together.

  • My first picture book—DON’T FEED THE BEAR—(Sterling Children’s Books) is featured on Kirkus Reviews’ recommended list…and has been nominated for the 2020-21 Young Hoosier Book Award.
  • My second picture book—THE THINGITY-JIG—(Peachtree Publishers) received STARRED REVIEWS from Kirkus Reviews and Foreword Reviews.
