Picture book writer, artist, mother, wife, dog owner, chicken farmer, snowboarder, mountain biker, reader, crafter, snorkeler, boater, and so much more!

I'm a stay-at-home mom, children's book writer and an artist. My love of picture books began at an early age; I even wrote and illustrated a series of books about mice families when I was in elementary school! I have 22 picture books in the works.

I majored in Journalism/Public Relations at Kansas State University, taking several writing courses including a creative writing class. I've taken Mira Reisberg's class The Art and Business ofWriting Children's Picture Books and I'm a member of SCBWI. I'm currently taking Mira Reisberg and Marsha Diane Arnold's Writing Wonderful Character-Driven Picture Books e-Course.

I love writing, it has always been a passion. I enjoy creating art; acrylic paint is my favorite medium. I'm also an outdoor enthusiast. I love mountain biking, snowboarding and hiking.
