  • I was a winner of the Spring Fling KidLit Contest for my story The Art of the Park.
  • I joined The Authors Guild.
  • I’m finishing the last (hopefully) round of edits on my debut picture book.

  • I contributed an essay to an online publications. Details to follow.
  • I joined an amazing group of picture book authors to form a co-marketing group, Picture Book Pals.
