I currently live in New York City where I write, paint and enjoy ballet. I also teach Literature and Writing courses at Berkeley College.

I’d love to hear from you. Email if you’d like more information about books or visits to your school or club—or just to say hi and talk.

Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you find a book here that’s just right for you.   As you can see, I like to write all kinds of stories—picture books, books for middle school girls, and Young Adult novels.

Below is a page from my first published book, Where Is Papa Now? which I wrote and illustrated. It tells the story of a young New England girl waiting for her father, a sea captain, to return from his voyages around the world. Visit the Pictures Page if you’d like to see more illustrations from the book.

For a full-length interview with the author, visit the Ballet Connections website.
