I have published fifty books for children, including Lucia and the Light, Aunt Nancy and Old Man Trouble, and Big Momma Makes the World, which won a Horn Book Award for picture books. A recent picture book One North Star won a John Burroughs Riverby award for Nature Writing, a Northeastern Minnesota Book Award, and a Midwest Booksellers Choice Award. I teach in the low-residency Master of Fine Arts in Writing for Children and Young Adults Program at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota.
