Biography

I’m a former elementary teacher who has been writing full-time for the last twenty years. My debut children’s novel, Eliza Bing Is (Not) A Big, Fat Quitter, received a Christopher Award and was nominated to four state award lists. And my debut picture book, To the Stars! The A First American Woman to Walk in Space, was on the 2017 Amelia Bloomer list. I like lists, cooking shows, taekwondo, and Pez dispensers - but not necessarily in that order.
