Working as a library assistant in a K-8 school fueled my love for children’s literature. I was often caught ‘loafing’ on the job. I would plunk myself on the floor next to the shelving cart to flip through picture book pages, scan inside jacket covers and dream.
Reading and telling stories to my kids at night was always a source of great joy. I read the entire Harry Potter series out loud to them…about a 10 year time span.
In addition to writing fiction for kids, I also write essays, short stories and poetry.
