Growing up, I never planned to become a writer. My sister was the storyteller in our family and that was just fine by me. I loved reading books, playing music, and learning new languages.
Years later, when I became an elementary school teacher, all three “favorites” followed me into the classroom. During the day, I read great books, sang, and even taught kids who were learning English for the first time. At night, I practiced writing picture books. I did that for many years! Today, I’m lucky enough to write full-time. When I’m not at my desk, I’m usually outside, enjoying the sunshiny goodness of Arizona.
