I write picture books that aim to evoke emotion–preferably laughter but also those that tug on the heart strings. Here’s what I’ve been up to:


Bringing Home Buster: Garth’s kitten is an astronomical nuisance. Buster tears down Garth’s solar system and crashes his screen time. When Garth plans a mission that includes his diverse crew, he discovers that having a co-pilot is more fun than flying alone.

Broccoli Dude: Despite being grade A gorgeous, Broccoli is overlooked for other vegetables in the grocery store. When Broccoli begins to droop, he sprouts a plan to make himself irresistible to children before becoming compost.

Bottom Shelf Blues: An outgrown picture book plots to save its spine before being shelved forever.

The Cover-Up: Move the rug! Hurl the pillows! Sit the cat! One cover-up leads to another as Ellie attempts to hide her redecorated bedroom wall from her meticulous mother.

Your Dance: A lyrical journey through a child’s dance of life, from an infant’s drumming heartbeat to finding a partner that doesn’t step on their toes.


Shake the World: Fred and Bonnie Cappuccino had modest means but enormous hearts, raising 21 children, 19 of which were adopted, and helping thousands of other underprivileged children achieve their dreams.
