Story
Tagline
Children's Writer/Dreamer
Introduction
I'm a children's author, early literacy storyteller/associate librarian, and the Co-Regional Advisor for SCBWI-WI. I graduated from Hamline University in MN w/ an MFA in writing for children and young adults in July '09.  My first picture book: BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! (FSG) will be released on May 28, 2013, followed by BIG RIG (Disney-Hyperion) in January 2014 and IF YOU WERE A DOG (FSG/date T.B.A.). I love writing books for kids and I love sharing books with kids and their families even more!
Bragging rights
I've been writing for over 13 years, and I'm still alive... (and mostly sane)
