I write picture books that aim to evoke emotion-preferably laughter but I’m all for a book that tugs on my heart strings. Here’s what I’ve been up to:


Shape School: Shapes discover that they have much in common with those that look nothing like them, even Jimmy, the ‘blob’.

Bottom Shelf Blues: Outgrown picture books plot to save their spines before being boxed away forever.

The Cover-Up: Ellie’s attempt to hide her drawing on her bedroom wall leads to a series of zany cover-ups that are impossible to hide.

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.

Broccoli Dude: When grade ‘A’ Broccoli moves to a house with children he must reinvent himself if he wants to be chosen from the crisper.


Shake the World: Fred and Bonnie Cappuccino had modest means but enormous hearts, resulting in thousands of underprivileged children worldwide achieving brighter futures.


Eyes on Me: Alina loves the performing arts-except the performing part. She devises a way to participate in the class recital, proving that there is more than one way to put on a successful performance.

Wishing Sundays: Effie must find a way for her aging grain to continue with their weekly trips to the library and wishing fountain.
