About Me

I write for or about kids. At the moment, I'm focused on completing a middle grade novel, but I've written picture books and chapter books as well. I blog about my own kids and their friends (as well as other random thoughts). I'm contemplating getting an MFA through the Vermont College program.

Why do you write?

Kids fuel my writing. I was a voracious reader between ages 9 and 12, and today I write for that audience, because I remember there weren't (and still aren't) enough good books on the shelves of libraries to fill kids' reading appetites.

Any favorite authors? Books?

KL Going, Fat Kid Rules the World; Jerry Spinelli, Maniac Magee; Anna Ursa, The Chronos Chronicles; Paul Shipton, The Pig Scrolls; Rick Riordon, The Lightening Thief; Susan Patron, The Higher Power of Lucky; Linda Sue Park, A Single Shard; JK Rowling, Harry Potter; JRR Tolkein, Lord of the Rings.
