I’m a children’s book writer who believes you can’t write an awesome manuscript without reading a library’s worth of awesome books. So that’s what I do. And you learn best when you teach others, so I’m recording what I find along the way.
My book reviews look at what worked. I love to deconstruct books.
I write all types of kidlit: Picture books, junior fiction, middle-grade, young adult. When writing I usually require a pot of tea beside me (French Earl Grey please, black), even if it often goes cold.
I live with my hubby and daughter, two chickens, and three neon tetra fish. By day I can be spotted in classrooms and gardens, pollinating cucurbits or inspiring kids to get their STEAM on (that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics in case you’re out of the education loop).
Read, enjoy and join the conversation!
