I’m passionately in love with stories–the stories that connect us across culture, race, and age. I think the right story, at the right time, can change a child’s life. I’m most interested in bringing forward stories that are being forgotten or misremembered. I write picture books, contemporary middle grade fiction, and YA fiction. My debut picture book, LET THE CHILDREN MARCH, was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in January 2018. My next book, STANDING ON HER SHOULDERS, will be coming out from Orchard Press (Scholastic) in February 2021, with the amazing Laura Freeman illustrating. I’m also a professional actor, former children’s librarian, and voice-over artist, and I live in a yurt in the country with one husband, too many cats, and just the right amount of daughters.
I am currently represented by a fantastic agent, Natalie Lakosil at Bradford Literary Agency:
