Growing up, I always enjoyed writing. I am fascinated by words, the emotions they evoke and the journey they take us on. Because of my interest in reading and writing, I studied Elementary Education, earning a double major in Language Arts and Mathematics, for my Bachelors degree. This degree allowed me the opportunity to teach first grade children how to read and write, for five wonderful years.
One of my passions is to help children learn and grow, especially in the area of literacy. This is why I went back to school during that time, to earn my Reading Specialist Master’s degree. Many of the stories I’ve written incorporate pieces of my life as a teacher. An author and a teacher at heart, you will find educational themes woven into my books.
Taking the time to read with a child is one of the most important and influential gifts we can give. Now, I have the pleasure of reading with my own children too. It is a joy to share my favorite books and authors with them. Being a parent has helped me grow as a person and a writer. My kids enable me to see the world through an exciting new lens.
