Welcome to my website, where you can learn about me and my books.
I started writing books for children in 2004. By studying at the
Hudson Valley Writers Center, working with my critique groups, and
revising (revising, revising...) I've worked to strengthen my writing
and expand my range.
Watching my stories inhabit the page is the best
thing about being a writer. Working with other talented writers is
the second best - learn about some of them at the website for
Reading the work of others working in literature for young people is
the third best, and often keeps me up late into the night. Whether
reading the gritty, powerful tales of Zusak and Almond, the delicious
fantasies of Rowling and Carson Levine, the gut-splitting comedy of
Snicket and Riordan, or the meaningful words of Sachar, Lowry, and
Creech (and I could go on and on and on), I'm grateful for the existence
of such marvelous role models!
Enjoy my site but, more importantly, embrace reading!
