Short Bio

I spent my childhood mucking about in the fields, forests, and swamps around the farm where I grew up in southeastern Massachusetts. As an exchange student in high school, I temporarily traded rural living for city life in Cebu, Philippines. These early experiences set me on my current course exploring nature and culture like the locals. I spent 10 wonderful years as a grade 4 teacher. Now, when I'm not mucking around in the world, I'm usually in my office or local coffee shop weaving these experiences into stories for children.

I'm represented by Jill Corcoran of Jill Corcoran Literary Agency.
