-As you can see from the picture above, I like to make stuff (that’s me making stuff when I was much, much younger). Now I write for girls that age.
-I’m a writer, teacher, speaker, mural artist, illustrator, designer and painter (you can see my work on this site; check out the tabs above)
-I wrote, illustrated, and –with my husband and our company, Three Trees, Inc.–published my first children’s book “Petalwink Learns to Fly” which was picked up by Rising Star Education, the best in character education publishing. Rising Star is now in process of publishing the whole series of seven Petalwink books in print and FastPencil PREMIERE is publishing all seven of the ebooks.
-I’m writing a series for tween readers called the Fifties Chix about 5 time traveling friends. The first book, Travel to Tomorrow, is available NOW in print and as an ebook and more books in the series are due in 2012 (sign up to be a fan and get updates!).
-I have so many ideas that sometimes it’s hard to focus! But I think stories with a positive message can be entertaining and that’s been my focus for the last seven+ years and the result of a happy childhood, a wonderful education and a blessed marriage.
