What I Do When I'm Not Writing:
I've been an advocate for better education for all children, but especially for military children, who change schools way too many times, and gifted children, whose needs are often minimized and forgotten. Some of the inspiration for Letters From Rapunzel and Operation Yes came from my experiences advocating for the needs of my own two children in several school districts around the country.
Iím also a member of MCEC (Military Child Education Coalition) and a longtime member of SCBWI (Society for Childrenís Book Writers and Illustrators)
I also love: fitness (yoga, hiking and golf), theater (particularly Shakespeare), poetry, reading, outdoor active travel, and fairy tales.
1) My favorite book is The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander.
