I write picture books, short fiction, poetry, and novels for children. My next picture book, The Book Dragon, will be out from Sterling in Fall 2018, following up my debut picture book, Mira Forecasts the Future (Sterling, 2016). My first novel, Deadwood (Spencer Hill Press), was published in 2014, and my poetry and fiction will appear in upcoming issues of Spider and Ladybug magazines.
In addition to writing for kids, I’m mom to two funny, curious, and brave daughters who inspire the characters in all my books. During the day I’m a writer, editor, and content manager for higher education. A committed generalist, I have a humanities degree from Johns Hopkins University and a master of liberal arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania. I live in Wynnewood, PA, near a park that looks a lot like the one in Deadwood, and in Belmar, NJ, near a boardwalk that inspired Mira Forecasts the Future,
