Wife, mother, dreamer, teacher, boo-boo kissing, monster-beater....that's basically my life in a nutshell. I'm navigating my way through this roller coaster known as children's publishing and picking up golden nuggets of wisdom at every twist and turn. It's a good thing I like roller coasters!

Channel Your Inner Non-Fiction Nerd!
Did you know that by now 46 states have adopted the Common Core Standards? What does that mean for writers? Teachers across America will be scrambling to stock their classroom libraries with info-rich, non-fiction books that align with the Common Core & ready students for the standardized test. Join me on Saturday, June 8 during the NJSCBWI Conference for my workshop: Channel Your Inner Nonfiction Nerd...Writing to Meet the Common Core. As a teacher and writer, I'll have a lot of insight to offer from both sides. So get ready to learn, get ready to write, and get ready to have some fun!
I will also offer critiques of Common Core-themed picture books during the Conference. For more info on the common core, visit: http://www.corestandards.org/
