• I write children’s fiction and nonfiction and have been the co-regional advisor since March 2013. My current projects include several picture books and Megan’s Solution, a middle grade novel about a twelve year old math geek. I own a suite of websites in which I post reviews of books, with emphasis on grade level. I’ve reviewed over 300 books for the Children’s Literature online database (www.clcd.com) and for http://gradereading.net. I’ve been everything from a stay-at-home mom to an actuarial consultant. Having grown up in the Midwest, I live in Maryland with husband. My two grown children live close by with their families.


  • There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. W. Somerset Maugham
