Merry Christmas, Mary Christmas!

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Hi Everybody,

I’m so excited to be able to announce my new book,  Merry Christmas, Mary Christmas! is finally out and available!

Every year, the Christmas family puts up the biggest Christmas tree. They hang the most lights. And their dog, Rudy barks Jingle Bells for the whole neighborhood to hear. The Christmas family loves Christmas. That is, except for seven-year-old Mary Christmas. Mary wants to love it. But how do you make a Christmas celebration better when it’s already as big as can be?

Trust me . . . Mary finds a way!

I hope you’ll enjoy reading this tale this holiday season as much as I enjoyed writing it! 

Talk to you soon!

Back to School, Mallory

Hi Everybody,

It’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end and that lots of you are already in back to school mode!  If you’re looking for some fun reading to get you into the spirit of things, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Back to School, Mallory and read all about Mallory starting a new school year at a new school and  . . . taking her mother with her as the new music teacher at Fern Falls Elementary. There’s never a dull moment in Mallory’s life!

I hope this is an awesome school year for all of you!

Happy reading and talk to you soon!

Author School Visits

Monday, July 31st, 2017

Hi Everybody,

One of the best parts about being an author is that I get to visit a lot of schools. I love meeting kids from all over the country and talking about the characters I’ve created and what it’s like to be an author. I also love conducting writing workshops.
