Hi! Welcome to my wonderful world of literature for those who love to engage with their imaginations!

I write novels for teens, chapter books for juniors, and picture books for the youngest readers. Adults also enjoy my complex characters, vivid settings, and universal conflicts.

The genres in which I write include historical, contemporary, fantasy, and science fiction.

Teachers use my nonfiction in their classrooms to teach literacy skills and general knowledge.
