The first bit of information I should share with you is how to pronounce my last name!
Please let me tell you a little about myself.
I've always tinkered with writing, ever since I snuck Judy Blume's "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret" in my book bag a long time ago! I loved to read so creating stories wasn't that big of a stretch for me.
In 2015, I began to dedicate myself to my writing goals. I began visiting elementary schools to share the writing process, which is one of the biggest joys of being an author! To see those little faces looking up at me, so young and hopeful. I designed a presentation around being interactive, fun, and educational. I joined writing groups, attended conferences and involved myself in a critique group, which took my writing to a whole new level.
As I wrote, I began to read different genres and found myself favoring picture books. I would check out a rolling cart full of picture books a few times a month from the library. After joining 12 x 12, I have worked on eight picture books in 2020. It doesn't even feel like work. I love every part of the writing process!
