About me

I’ve lived on three continents and currently write from the United States. I’ve worked with children and families for the past twenty years, from teaching in schools, to working with teenagers and moms in the prison system, to teaching teachers at workshops and conferences. I currently am a literacy consultant in public schools, modeling balanced literacy, supporting teachers, and facilitating school-wide change and growth.

And I write. As much as I can. And when I’m stuck, I’m reading. And when I’m not stuck, I’m reading. I’m just always reading. Follow my book club website for my favorite reads and author interviews.

I write best in silence between talking for hours to amazing friends and framily. I love to hike all day, as long as I don’t have to camp with bears. I sleep best on trains.
