A little about me . . .
With a unique blend of counseling and fine art degrees, I write and illustrate children’s picture books that encourage emotional intelligence and resilience through humor and imagination.
I hold a BFA in Art and Teaching Certification from the University of Michigan and a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Central Michigan University
Currently, I am the Assistant Regional Advisor for the SCBWI Carolinas Region and have been a SCBWI member since 2006
Recently, I have relocated to Durham, North Carolina with my husband Terry and a german shepherd named Greta, who keeps me company in my art studio. When I am not working on my latest book we can be found hiking the trails of North Carolina or enjoying the many activities that this region has to offer.
