Hello and thank you for visiting my website. In addition to updates on my published work, this site also lists upcoming events and appearances.
Writing children’s literature brings me more enjoyment than any other genre of writing. An underlying consistency in my work is my use of humor. I can think of no better way to enhance a child’s interest in reading than by making them laugh. I hope that I do both.
