I am an award-winning children’s author, educator, literacy advocate as well as chief creative officer of Pattycake Productions. I have published over 150 children’s books (everything from. board books, big books, early readers, picture books--both fiction and narrative non-fiction, and early chapter books), scores of magazine stories, poems, and a growing list of scripts for children's programming. 

On top of writing full-time, I offer a variety of reading and writing programs to inspire and motivate young readers and writers. :) PJM
