Welcome to my website!

Thanks for stopping by. I love great writing in all of its forms, but picture books and kidlit mysteries bring me the most joy. Celebrating and promoting diversity in children's literature (and in life) is very important to me, as is finding ways to help children and their parents (and myself!) cope with big emotions. My blog consists of picture book reviews, author interviews, craft talk, writing contest entries, and a Collaboration Corner - where I interview writers and artists who have created picture books in collaboration (prior to finding a publisher). Click on the links above to explore, and please leave a comment. I'd love to hear what you think!


I’m thrilled to announce that I was chosen as a scholarship recipient for The Writing Roosters Memorial Scholarship to participate in the Michelle Begley Mentorship Program through the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the SCBWI. I will be working with the amazing author, Claudia Mills, to revise the first Chapter Book in an intended series about unsolved historical mysteries.

My diverse SEL counting concept book, ALL ABOARD THE CUZCO TRAIN, was chosen as a finalist for the 2022 #PBParty Showcase.

I was also extremely honored and excited to have been the recipient of a free 3 month mentorship with the amazing Anika Denise, through Justin Colon’s 2019 #PBChat Mentorship! Thank you Anika and Justin!
