Thanks for stopping by! Since you're visiting my site, I assume you love books and reading . . . maybe even writing. I've been writing since I was nine years old. My favorite thing to do back then was watch a TV show and then rewrite the episode with myself included as a young character. Great fun! I'd still do it if I had time. But now I'm too busy writing middle grade novels instead. Take a minute to meet twelve year old Poppy Parker, a young girl whose passion for dogs helps her cope with some huge personal upheavals, in my latest novel, A Million Ways Home. Visit my Books page to read a summary and see what readers are saying about it. While you're there, take a minute to meet spunky, sweet Piper Lee DeLuna, the star of my debut novel, A Smidgen of Sky. The last thing Piper wants is a step-dad or bratty step-sister, and she's determined to stop her mama from remarrying at any cost! Surf around the site to find out more about me, to see pictures of my two adorable dogs and pictures of my book events, or to read a free short story or article. Thanks so much for visiting.
