About the Author

Thank you for visiting my website. I am a writer from the Philadelphia area, spending my  days on a college campus working with students, and my free time in area coffee shops and libraries writing for children and middle grade readers.JRB2

At the start of my writing journey I spent a short career writing IMG_0833 (1)how-to style guide books, publishing The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Bridal Showers in 1999 and The Everything Scrapbooking Book in 2002. These experiences were a great introduction to the publishing industry, and helped me to see where I wanted to spend my writing energy. I then joined SCBWI, found a great writing group, and have been writing stories for children ever since. I  focus on picture books and middle-grade novels, and am drawn to writing about little-known nuggets of history.
