• A member of SCBWI, I serve the Houston chapter as Regional Advisor. My days are filled with writing, editing, thumbnails, art classes, and several supportive author and illustration critique groups.​ ​I call Houston, Texas home, and proudly so. I love living in this diverse and exciting city with my incredibly supportive husband, a bubbly 10-year old, and a goofy first grader.


  • I love immersing myself in the craft of children’s literature and developing my skills. I am a member of three critique groups (two for writing, one for illustration) and I take art classes locally to continue the development of my skills.
