Hi there! I'm so glad you're here!
I write fun and fact-filled books for young readers. I'm curious about everything, and I especially love animals, music, art, and food—things that've inspired many of my award-winning books.
From skydiving beavers, click-clack crabs, and guacamole-making red hens to space-age sound artists, painters seeking a style, and young leaders finding their voice, I've been surprised, amazed, and inspired by the people, places, and creatures I've researched and written about. I hope you will be too!
