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. As a reading specialist, I especially love bringing kids and quality literature together.

  • My first picture book—DON’T FEED THE BEAR—(Union Square Kids) is featured on Kirkus Reviews’ recommended list…and is in its sixth printing.
  • My second picture book—THE THINGITY-JIG—(Peachtree) received a STARRED REVIEW from Kirkus Reviewsis a CCBC Choiceand is licensed to be published in nine languages.
  • My third picture book—THE TWIST-A-ROO—(Peachtree) is forthcoming in November 2023.
