Hello!! I am an author/illustrator with several manuscripts and dummies. I love writing and drawing and reading and sharing stories. I'm an active member of SCBWI and critique groups, and attend conferences and participate in online courses whenever I can.

My goal is to make books that families love to read together – again and again, as my four-year old would say!

I grew up in Rhode Island, attended the Rhode Island School of Design, and worked for ten years for an award-winning interaction design firm. While there, I spent my time traveling the world (well, some of it) and designing awesome interactive experiences for grown-ups and kids.

These days, I live in The Woodlands, TX with a wonderful husband and three inspiring little kids. We all love (in alphabetical order) adventures, art, bikes, books, bread, climbing, gardening, God, music, and road trips with our camper.


You'll usually find us out on the street riding bikes or playing with the neighbors. The house is rarely clean, but the door is always open if you need a friend, a snack, or a chat about children's books.
