I am so glad you stopped by. I always feel very lucky when people ask me what I do because I LOVE what I do. I am a writer and I mostly write stories for kids– kids make a whole lot of sense to me.
Who am I? That’s good question…
I’m pretty much the same as I was when I was little. By and large, I have the same face (see photo) and I still like wearing long-sleeved shirts under short-sleeved tee’s. Some things never change.
As a kid, I was always “wondering about.” I wondered out the car window, and up the branches of trees. I wondered along beaches and deep into crackling campfires. At some point I wasn’t able to keep all of my wonderings to myself. Luckily, at a friend’s birthday party in fifth grade, I reached into a grab bag and pulled out a journal. There was something about it that seemed to whisper, what if? And I have been answering that question ever since.
I now write from my home outside of San Francisco, where I live with my husband, our three amazing kids and our scratchy-sniffy dog. I enjoy visiting schools and libraries to share my passion for writing with kids of every age. I am the Speaker Coordinator for the San Francisco North & East Bay Region of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators).
I am thrilled to be represented by Emily van Beek at Folio Literary Management. My debut picture book, I ♥ You, illustrated by Sarah Jane Wright, will launch Spring 2016 (Beach Lane Books/Simon & Schuster) and my next book, Ready, Set, Build! launches in Spring 2017 (Little Bee Books/Bonnier)… and I couldn’t be happier!
