What's new?

Welcome!

My nonfiction picture book UP! HOW FAMILIES AROUND THE WORLD CARRY THEIR LITTLE ONES will be available on April 15 from OwlKids. And if you'd like a sneak peek before it publishes, you can read it on NetGalley: http://bit.ly/2jDZEl6

I've learned that rights to my picture book MAGGIE McGILLICUDDY's EYE FOR TROUBLE (Kids Can) have been sold to China Youth Books.  

As well, the first three books in my chapter book series THE PUPPY COLLECTION (Scholastic) will soon be translated into Czech and available in that country.

I write, edit, and story coach!

Please enjoy exploring my website and, as always, feel free to contact me with any questions or work inquiries. I am happy to discuss new editing projects or to assist you with your writing needs. I also provide manuscript critiques and edits for writers, new and experienced. 

Are you a teacher or librarian? Perhaps I'll see you at the Ontario Library Association conference in Toronto on February 2. I'll be signing and giving away copies of UP! How Families Around the World Carry Their Little Ones (Owlkids, spring 2017) along with the book's amazing illustrator Ashley Barron at the Owl booth between 9 and 9.30. We can't wait to share our picture book with you!
