I write children's books, poetry, and magazine fiction and nonfiction. My debut fiction picture book, PRUDENCE, THE PART-TIME COW, was published by Henry Holt in June 2017. Simon & Schuster recently released THE WAY THE COOKIE CRUMBLED, a Level 3 history reader. A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK will be published by Nancy Paulsen Books/Penguin in February 2018, and Beach Lane Books will release IT'S YOUR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, BUSY BUS! in July 2018. I've also written 30 other picture books for children, with more on the way! My magazine work can be found in magazines like Highlights, High Five, Hello, Babybug, and Clubhouse Jr.
