|Location||St. Louis, Missouri, United States|
|Introduction||In all my roles (reader, writer, teacher, parent of adult readers, aunt) I'm passionate about children's literature. My special love is middle grade fiction, but I have a soft spot for picture books, too. My stories, articles, and poems have been published in Spider Magazine, Highlights, Super Teacher Worksheets, and Stories for Children. I am a proud member of SCBWI. I'm represented by Kathleen Rushall of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.|
|Favorite Music||Varies with my mood--anything from folk rock to baroque to Broadway musicals.|
|Favorite Books||Too many to list. I love character-driven fiction, fantasy, and paranormal; I enjoy some magical realism (but I'm picky about it); I'm a huge fan of Barbara Kingsolver and Alice Hoffman; and I don't think you can ever be too old for a good middle grade or YA novel!|
The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?
I think I'd be very hoppy.
