The experience I bring to the (writing) table...

When I was six years old, I received a pink diary with a fancy little lock on it. My first entry was about catching ladybugs and how many I collected. I’ve been writing ever since.

 

I was an elementary school teacher and wrote online training material for higher education and health/safety markets. Now, I write picture books and middle-grade novels!

I belong to the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI (Rocky Mountain Chapter) where I attend amazing workshops and conferences to learn how to become a better writer. In 2017, my picture book manuscript, Waiting for Kai, was nominated for the Golden Pen Award. My writer’s critique group, lovingly named Picture Book Junkies (PBJs) and the 12×12 Writing Challenge keep me writing just about every day! 

 

When I’m not writing books, I’m busy with my husband and three kids either hiking, traveling, listening to music, reading or doing dishes(!).
