Welcome to my new adventure

Updated: Jan 8

I'm on the cusp of starting something new. Something big. For my entire life I've wanted to be an author and now, somehow, that dream is about to come true. This hardly feels real...


I know there are no guarantees out there, and so, it's anyone's guess how long I will have the privilege of calling myself a children's book author. I want to celebrate every second of this special and sacred responsibility, and I certainly do not want to take anything for granted. So, my next goal is to I remember to be present for every moment: from pouring over the details of my marketing plan, to actually holding a copy of my book in my hands, to reading at the book launch--I will remember all of this for the rest of my life.

I've carved out this small corner of the internet to share some bits and bobs along the way. I love to talk children's literature and want to share what it's like as I find my feet becoming a new author. By now, I'm sure you've realized, based on all the other pages on my site, but I'll share it again--my debut picture book is being published, NATURE IS AN ARTIST by Greystone Kids (pub date is May 17, 2022)!


I hope you'll join me here from time-to-time. You can also find me on:
