A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK will be published by Nancy Paulsen Books/Penguin in 2018, and Beach Lane Books will release IT'S YOUR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, BUSY BUS! in 2018. I've also written 29 other picture books for children, with more on the way! My magazine work can be found in Highlights, Highlights High Five, Hello, Babybug, Humpty Dumpty, Clubhouse Jr., and more.
