Welcome!

What do a talking cow, a plucky origami doll, twelve big toe-sized babies, and the city of New York have in common? The answer is that each plays a starring or supporting role in one of my books. I've written gentle lullabies, original fairy tales, non-fiction, poetry, and stories that are just plain fun. All of them reflect things that are important to me - family, a love of words, a passion for reading, a fascination with the faraway and the fantastical, and a curiosity about the world.
