Hi there! And welcome to my web site. Thanks so much for dropping by.
I live here in Houston, Texas with my husband and three Boston Terriers (Bostons are like potato chips – you can never have just one).
I hold a bachelor’s degree in creative writing from Vermont College and I am an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I write poetry, short stories, middle grade novels and am in the early throws (very early!) of my first young adult novel. I’ve published poetry and short stories but am yet undiscovered in the genre of children’s writing.
Off and on I teach yoga at the Texas Yoga Center in Copperfield. I find in yoga that single-minded discipline that tames the chattering monkey mind and stills the voices in my head.
In my blog you’ll find thoughts about recently read books. I don’t claim to write reviews about these books, just my own personal take on them. Sometimes I’ll go off on a non-book related tangent. But for the most part, it’ll be all about the books.
