056Thank you for visiting!                                                                                                                                           I love writing picture books and chapter/early middle-grade books. And I am a huge fan of YA and love finding books I can’t put down.

My first picture book, ALL BEARS NEED LOVE, (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) addresses the comments, questions, and curiosities my family experienced during the adoption of our son. Click the ALL BEARS NEED LOVE tab at the top of the page to learn more and watch the trailer by MightyPants Media.

I’m beyond excited about my latest picture book, LITTLE TACO TRUCK, (Schwartz & Wade/Random House). Working with Schwartz & Wade has been amazing and Jorge Martin’s art brought my little trucks to life! Head over to my Little Taco Truck page for more information.

After earning my film degree I worked in script development for many years before moving into the world of non profit and early literacy. These experiences, along with years of foster/adoptive/biological parenting, lead to my love of writing for children.  I am currently an active member of SCBWI and The Atlanta Writer’s Club.
