Welcome to my website.

You’ll find information about me, and my writing for young people. I enjoy crafting contemporary realistic fiction and compelling nonfiction about people and events not usually found in classroom texts.

I encourage you to explore the site. Find out four fun facts about me, sign up for my mailing list (only occasional posts, I promise!) and follow me on social media for events, pictures and occasional musings about life and writing.
