• Growing up, I loved to write and make art. Real life intervened in the form of college, law school, and a decade-long career as an environmental attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice and the nonprofit marine conservation group Oceana. 

    I have now returned to my original love of writing and illustrating. I am currently writing middle grade science fiction and am represented by Jennifer March Soloway of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. My debut picture book A MORNING WITH GRANDPA, illustrated by Christina Forshay (Lee & Low 2016) was the 2013 Lee and Low New Voices Award winner.

    I co-run the award-winning kid lit resource website kidlit411.com.


  • I write, draw and paint for kids. I’m inspired by aliens, bunnies, cephalopods, krakens, and more.
