I grew up in the mountain desert of southwest Wyoming with a library right out my back gate. I can still walk into that library today and feel totally at home.

Today I live in central California, where the miles and miles of orchards and farmland never seem to end, the summers are excruciatingly hot, and the winters are foggy and green.

Insomnia’s never been so life changing. πŸ™‚

Now I write middle grade novels and picture books and am represented by Elizabeth Harding of Curtis Brown LTD.

In addition to writing, I enjoy playing the piano, knitting, reading, playing board games with my husband and five kids, and snuggling my very roly-poly bulldog.
