I have a Master of Education degree and a Bachelor of Arts. I was a teacher of English and German and began my journey in children's literature about 12 years ago. I submitted poems and short pieces to Kids Imagination Train, a former online magazine for children where I also served as Promotion Manager for a short time. I have also written three articles for Children's Book Insider, an adult online website for children's literature. This year I had a poem published by Phoenix English Magazine and a non-fiction article on the American Eel published by Nature Friend Magazine.
