• I currently live in Minneapolis, MN with my comic creating husband, two children, and rescue dog Rufus.  I am most well known for my book The Rabbit Listened but have helped create several books including Good Dog, Wild Baby, The True Adventures of Esther the Wonder Pig, and my upcoming Goodbye,Friend! Hello, Friend! 


  • I have always loved to draw. As a child, I grew up drawing cartoon characters and animals. I dreamed of one day being an animator for Walt Disney or Warner Bros. Life lead me on a different path, and I am now a children’s book author and illustrator who has helped create more than 30 titles. I illustrated books by Brooke Shields, as well as one featuring Esther the Wonder Pig. I also have several self-authored titles including, The Rabbit Listened. Just like when I was a child, what I truly love is bringing stories to life through text and art.  My goal is always to make highly expressive characters and create an emotional experience for the reader.  When I am not working on books, I teach art to local kids at various Young Author Young Artist conferences.  I am also a mother to two budding artists. I feel that art is a powerful and unique way for all to express and raise their voice.
