Thank you for stopping by. I am an author of literature for middle-grade kids (so far), but a lot of adults love my books, too. I write realistic fiction about things that matter. Real things that happen to people like you and me. I don’t shy away from subjects that are sensitive, that might make you laugh a little too loud, or grab a tissue to wipe away a tear. I write books about real-life stuff, with characters who are like you and me, in places you will find familiar even if you’ve never been there yourself. And, of course, there are always lots of animals and trees.
I was formerly represented by Al Zuckerman, the founder of Writers House until he retired at age 90. I am now represented by Susan Cohen, also of Writers House, LLC.
In addition to writing books, I am a professional Book Coach, I am the Director of Community Engagement for Off Square Theatre Company; I run the JH Writers Almost Authors Writing Camps for Kids every summer; I lead a parent-daughter book club through St. John’s Episcopal Church; and am on the Board of Directors of the Jackson Hole Writers Conference.
