I write picture books for readers who want to laugh and learn. My stories entertain children and the adults who read with them. I’m especially excited about these projects:

RUBY’S RED HAIR MYSTERY

Ruby wants to know why she’s the only red-haired cow in her herd, but her constant questions drive her farm friends crazy. Learning how to hunt down answers herself helps Ruby solve her coloured coat mystery and restore harmony at home.

  • Themes: Curiosity, scientific investigation, genetics

STEP INTO FALL

Birthday wish not coming true? A ‘falling leaf wish’ might be luckier for you! Fun and frolic await outside your front door. Come, STEP INTO FALL.

  • Themes: Accessible outdoor activity, autumn, family time

JAKE JONES’ *FREE* READING ADVENTURE

Jake Jones’ reading tips bring adventure, freedom and even cake to a frustrated child reader who ends up out-reading, and out-adventuring, Jake himself.

  • Great for: reluctant and emerging readers

THE BEST BEACH DAY. EVER. 

Emma’s long-awaited beach day with her hardworking mom will be her last unless Emma relaxes their action-packed schedule and leans into the joy of a day off together.

  • Great for: Mother’s day, summer vacation, families with a working or single parent

PROFESSIONAL PIRATE

Pete’s dream of becoming a buccaneer turns to shark bait when his dad enrolls him in school. When his math moves help the crew become successful, instead of swindled, seadogs, Pete maps out a new plan that won’t throw his dreams overboard.

  • Themes: STEM (math), following your dreams, father-son relationship

BRINGING HOME BUSTER

A nuisance brother. A crazy kitten. Garth ditches his co-pilots to fly solo, but discovers it’s lonely being a cranky captain. When Garth adapts a mission to include his diverse crew, a cosmic adventure unfolds.

BROCCOLI DUDE

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

  • Great for a laugh-out-loud reading experience

BOTTOM SHELF BLUES

Night Night Numbers is Jacob’s favorite book–until Jacob discovers superhero stories. Night Night must draft a plan to save his spine before being boxed away forever.

  • Themes: early literacy, new siblings, feeling forgotten about, dealing with change

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.

  • Themes: creativity, freedom of expression, parent-child relationship

YOUR DANCE

A lyrical journey through a child’s dance of life, from an infant’s drumming heartbeat, a child untangling their own feet and an adult meeting a partner that doesn’t step on their toes.

  • Great for: Milestone events (e.g. graduation, moving out), young dancers
