ARTIST STATEMENT

  • Dream Fulfilled

    Being able to write books for middle grade and young adult readers has fulfilled a long-held dream. I was an English/history teacher, a middle school principal, and a deputy superintendent for curriculum and instruction. Throughout all of these roles, I yearned to write nonfiction books that would not bore my readers. I hope I have accomplished that goal with the most recent publication of my 16th book.
