I write picture books and middle grade stories with humor, heart, and social justice themes. I love KidLit because I believe in the power of kids to build a more just and compassionate world. 

"It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face

a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less

cruel and heartless."  ~ L.R. Knost


About Me

I come from a family of storytellers. Maybe that's why

I started writing when I was very young: I’ve never been able to resist a good yarn! 

I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Print Journalism from the University of Florida. I'm also a member of the 12x12 Picture Book Forum, #PBChat, and the Rainbow Picture Book Caucus (an ad hoc critique/support group for LGBTQ picture book writers).


When I'm not writing or herding my two children, I can be found reading, gaming, watching Star Trek TNG, growing my comic book collection, and baking blue ribbon cakes.
