I am a former kindergarten teacher and a published author of thirteen picture books. When I am not writing I enjoy water color painting, ballet classes, traveling and teaching English as a Literacy Volunteer of America. I am a mother of two, and a deliriously happy grandmother of five!
When I need inspiration, I just keep my eyes and ears open. There are new ideas everywhere, if you simply stop to look and listen.
If I were not a children's book author I would go back to teaching kindergarten. My adorable students always made me laugh and filled me with inspiration.
I hope young readers will have a good time reading my books. I always try to have a sense of humor in my writing. If children laugh and enjoy what they are reading, they will be more likely to read more and more books!
When I was a child, my mother would take me to the library every Saturday morning. We didn't have a car, so we walked there in all kinds of weather. It was worth it to me because I loved books so much, that getting books was like getting presents!
