I was born and raised in the Steel City. Gorgeously gritty, Pittsburgh, PA. After getting a B.A. in English, I started a career in television. A promotion plopped me in sunny SoCal working for Twentieth Century Fox Film and Sports, but creative writing was always my passion.
Today, I do exactly what I love. I write picture books!
Bold characters, animals, nature and heartfelt imagination are my inspiration.
My inner 8-year-old runs the show.
Although I write for kids, I believe there’s magic in picture books for people of all ages. My hope is that my words make it all the way from my heart… to yours.
This is why I write.
