I love a good story, whether true or made-up. As a reader, I’ve spent hours of my life lost in a book. As a writer, I’ve published more than 100 short stories, articles, crafts, and activities for children and adults. My work has appeared in Highlights, Highlights High FiveCricket, and Boys’ Quest magazines, to name a few, as well as in seven volumes of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

I aspire to write enaging, quality stories for kids—the kind that will keep them reading past bedtime, accompany them on a cross-country road trip, or simply provide them another world to escape to for a while.

Thanks for stopping by!
