Children's Book Author & Editor
I write quirky picture books with equal doses of heart and humor. I have an MFA in Fiction from Sarah Lawrence College and have published short stories, book reviews, and feature stories.
I am represented by Natascha Morris at Tobias Literary Agency.
THE WASHINGTON PAPER
I love helping writers make good stories even better and working with them to draw in new, sometimes unexpected readers.
As Editor at Cardinal Rule Press, I search high and low for the choicest manuscripts. Reach out to learn about speaking opportunities and conference availability.
On select occasions, I provide freelance editorial services such as manuscript critiques. Please write to me if you'd be interested in this kind of opportunity.

Author. Editor. Dad. Partner. Rescuer of bunnies. (Well, a bunny.)
My journey to kidlit began the day my son came home from school feeling ashamed of his beloved pink sparkly shoes. Seeing my child's need for more acceptance inspired a story and ended up reshaping my writing and editing practice.
