​​​NEWS! I now teach online writing lessons and small group classes for kids, ages 8-18. My newest book, a poetry collection for both adults and YA readers, DISILLUSIONS OF GRANDEUR--AND OTHER EYE-OPENERS, is now available in paperback from Amazon.com. Click on the title to go directly to Amazon.


         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 on Wood, ​and my educational textbook, Writing Success Through Poetry, I have been teaching private writing workshops and lessons, and also work as a free-lance editor and writing coach. I love to read and sing to audiences and am known for singing the many songs that appear in most of my books. My works-in-progress all have their own original soundtracks! Even my newest poetry book, Disillusions of Grandeur--and Other Eye-Openers, includes links to my Soundcloud account, where I post original song recordings.



​Inspiring awe for words and awesome writing, since 1997, I offer author visits, designed for readers of children's books, and also writing workshops for kids and adults, focusing on poetry prompts, writing as a process, and editorial techniques to create vivid, memorable word​s.
