I joined SCBWI back in 1989 to learn a few tips about writing for children. I've been learning ever since. Although unpublished, I write for the sheer joy and love of it. At first, I delved into the realm of novels working on a middle grade historical. Two other novels await my attention, both YA. And if that's not enough, I really enjoy writing picture books.
“I write about characters who demand their story be told. SCBWI and members have given me bucket loads of encouragement over the years, and at a conference I found my critique group partners. The knowledge shared by all is invaluable.”
I have served as an Advisory Committee member to SCBWI-MI for several years, and stepped into a co-RA role for SCBWI-MI in June 2012 working alongside Leslie Helakoski.
Craig and I have celebrated 33 years of marriage so far. We have two grown-up daughters. Lindsay is married to Ben, and our grandson is Zachary. Tanya is engaged to Nathan.
Member since 1989
