I am a mom, writing consultant, author, and former middle school teacher. I write both fiction and non-fiction for children, including over 50 titles for the education market. In 2020, my first fiction picture book, THE FORT (Page Street Kids) was published! Currently I live and play in Boulder with my husband and twin boys.

Presentation Description:
Interested in having a non-fiction author speak to your group? I focus my presentations on researching and writing nonfiction, including finding information, organizing it, creating an outline, and writing clear, informative text. However, I am able to cater any presentation to meet the needs and interests of your group.
