~~ Biography ~~
In Tulsa, Oklahoma I grew up with two brothers. Storytime, finger-painting, and cooking were my favorite class activities when I taught kindergarten in the Tulsa Public Schools. When school starts every year, I want a brand new box of crayons!
I love picture book writing, author visits, crayons and dogs! One of my hobbies is solving and creating puzzles. Click the Personal Puzzles tab above and find puzzles to print at home.
Now I live in Houston with my husband Robert and our Maltese, Comet. Our son, Jeff, lives in Austin, Texas, and our daughter, Julie, lives nearby.
I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, attending conferences in Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Vermont, New York and Los Angeles. I belong to a children’s writers critique group and am a freelance editor.
