Location Charleston, SC, United States
Introduction I am a scientist-turned-children's writer, an atheist-turned-Catholic, and most recently, author-turned-publisher. But I’ll always be a wife, a mother, and a beloved child of God. I am the author of over 70 books for children, including TEN EASTER EGGS, and just as many magazines articles, stories and poems. BOUND is my first novel for teens and up. I am both a graduate and a retired instructor of the Institute of Children's Literature. I write, teach, and publish from home in beautiful Charleston, SC. I am happy to lead writing workshops for children and adults. I also take on private critique clients. Please contact me for rates and availability.
