I have loved writing since I first learned to read. Both my mother and I were savers, so I have stories I wrote that date all the way back to my elementary school days. I also have random diaries from those days and up through college. What a gift to be able to revisit childhood and my years growing up!
While I have published poems, essays and reviews aimed at a grown-up audience, my true love as a writer is divided between children's poetry (and picture books!) and YA novels. You can read excerpts from both on their prospective pages.
