My Books

I have spent 30 years reading books to children and now, as an emerging writer of children’s literature, I am excited to share two of four picture book titles here on submission…I am currently working on another two manuscripts.

A Girl Saw a Beetle

Curiosity and wonder draw Olivia deeper into the trees. She peeks into the world in a bead of water,      visits with a family of mushrooms, leaps across a shimmering brook and embraces a Mother tree. But suddenly, she discovers something has forever changed in the heart of the wood…and just as suddenly, something in the heart of Olivia changes, too.

The Jack-O-Lantern Gleamed

As four children prepare for Halloween night, all is quiet… quiet, that is, until the sun dips low into dusk on Halloween night…One by one ghoulish creatures come haunting! Something strange flies in the dark! And who is the spooky spectre lighting the Jack-O-Lantern near the old oak tree?
