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 writing for children and middle grade readers.

At the start of my writing journey I spent a short career writing 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. GOODBYE, MR. SPALDING is my debut Middle Grade novel.
