• I currently serve as RA for SCBWI Carolinas, homeschool my youngest teen daughter, teach Sunday school, write mysteries, eat chocolate, and wish my dishes would clean themselves.
    I have been a member of SCBWI since 2003. My publishing history includes BEING FRANK (Flashlight Press, 2012), Highlights for Children, High Five, the SCBWI Bulletin, and Blue Mountain Arts (greeting card company). I am a writing coach for WriteAtHome and live in NC with my husband, three daughters, two Plott Hounds, and a foster guinea pig named Mr. Pigglesworth. 


  • “First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it. We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand.”  — C.S. Lewis.
