I have loved writing since I first learned to read. Both my mother and I were savers, so I have stories I wrote in childhood stuffed in albums, boxes, and file folders. I also have random diaries dating from elementary school 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 YA novels. You can read excerpts from both on their prospective pages.
