As a child, I loved reading. Books opened up new worlds and new adventures that fed my imagination. As a writer, I hope my books do the same for readers today. I've written biographies, history books, and science books on a variety of subjects. I've written novels and picture books. Every book poses new challenges for me as a researcher and writer. I love delving into the adventure.
Before becoming a full-time writer, I taught English and social studies to students in grades 7-12 and worked as a librarian in both elementary schools and colleges. I love to visit schools and meet with young readers and writers. When not writing, I enjoy biking, traveling to visit family in Vermont and South Carolina, and reading great books by my favorite authors. For more information, visit my website.
I offer several different programs with visuals and time for Q &A:
