In addition to coaching and editing young authors, I am now taking on a limited number of adult author-clients who also write novels for children and teens. Contact me for more information.
I write fiction for children and young adults, books and materials for writing instruction (some available on TeachersPayTeachers.com), poetry, and songs. Since publishing my first two books, the novel Knock onWood, and my educational textbook, Writing Success Through Poetry, I have also taught private writing workshops, and worked as a free-lance editor and writing coach. I love to read to audiences and am known for imitating many voices and singing the songs that appear in most of my books. My works-in-progress all have their own original soundtracks!
Inspiring awe for words and awesome writing, since 1997, I aim to help my readers and my students find and form connections with others via memorable words.
