Keya is way past mad. Her little brother Nate messed up everything–even breakfast. She heads to school kicking rocks and sticks. When her best friend Hooper tries to help, Keya shouts, “I don’t even like you.” It’s not true, but Hooper storms off, kicking rocks and sticks too. Keya gave him her mad! Now it’s up to Keya to find a different way past mad and to make things right. A relatable story that speaks to kids’ emerging emotional intelligence skills.
When I was a child, I re-envisioned neighborhood games like wire ball, traveled to space in my under-the-desk rocket, built snow castles for faraway kingdoms, and climbed trees taller than the sun (even after falling into a trash can). I also liked putting on shows in our living room and attempting gymnastic tricks–key word: attempting.
Now, I embrace that sense of wonder and create stories to empower children, teens, and families. I love all-things-Philadelphia, all forms of music, and all people who believe in kindness. My Quiet Ship is my debut picture book. You can likely find me reading it while savoring dark chocolate, attempting gymnastic tricks, or cuddling with my two daughters, hubby, and our dogs.
