About Me

“When I was a child, reading saved my life. As an adult, I’ve found my way writing childhood.”

I’ve been writing books for children and young adults since 1989. My writing career is part of a personal quest that began in my own early childhood. What I experienced as a child, along with questions that formed in my mind at an early age, has been the source and impetus for many of my stories.

“The Granddaughter Necklace,” is a Children’s Book Council “Hot Pick” as well as a Notable Book in the Field of Social Studies. “Something Beautiful” was a Parents’ Magazine Best Book of the Year. I am also the author of historical fiction including “Corey’s Underground Railroad Diaries” and “Once on This River.”
