Writer, artist, mother, wife, dog owner, chicken farmer, snowboarder, mountain biker, reader, crafter, snorkeler, boater, and so on and so forth . . . 

My love of reading began at an early age and so did my love of writing. I dreamed of being an author someday, I even wrote and illustrated a series of books about mice families when I was in elementary school!

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 enjoy creating art; I do acrylic paintings and small polymer clay figures and ornaments.
