Thank you for visiting my Web site. I create stories for children that help them connect with the world around them. Through my books, I share my excitement and curiosity about:
- Travel and learning about other cultures (A Tale of Two Rice Birds and Manorah the Bird Princess, Arctic Journey)
- Discovering true stories about the natural world ( Hansa and Lootas)
- Researching history - especially the feisty women who have made a difference in the world (Abigail Adams and Rachel Carson),
- Experiencing the power of teamwork in sports (Soccer Dreams and Charge Ahead)
Through my writing workshops and In-School Field Trips in schools and libraries, children discover their own voice and create stronger stories using my three-problem approach to story structure. Please take a few moments to look around my website.
