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 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.
