Excerpt
Over the past seven years, I’ve devoted myself to learning everything thing I can about writing for children and sharing this knowledge with others. My articles have appeared in journals and newsletters around the world.


My writing credits range from poetry and plays to short stories, early readers, chapter books, mid-grade books, novels, non-fiction books, articles and even cartoons. Ninety-four published books sit proudly on my shelf.
