About Me

At the age of 7, I discovered a love of magic and mystery after receiving a magic set and my first Bobbsey Twins Mystery book. Today, I am an award-winning poet and author, and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Mystery Writers of America.

I am an award-winning poet and author of books for children from toddlers through middle grade. My middle-grade story, “The Magic Day Mystery”, appears in SUPER PUZZLETASTIC MYSTERIES, an anthology from HarperCollins and the Mystery Writers of America. My debut picture book, THE FREEMAN FIELD PHOTOGRAPH, illustrated by Jerome White, was published by Clearfork Publishing/Spork. My early reader series, MR. GRIZLEY’S CLASS, illustrated by Arief Putra, is available in August from Picture Window Press. I live in Northern California with my family.
