Children's Book Author
Scribble Buddies President of Operations
I have always been enthusiastic about great writing! I am looking to continue my writing journey and hope to evolve my passion into a thriving career as a professional author.
I have one self published title and I am currently looking to work with a literary agent to develop my books professionally. For my first book, I wrote and illustrated it in a very simple fashion. My goal was to see the process from beginning to end.
Please take a look at The Happy Tree and The Bee and reach out to learn how I went through each step of self publishing.
A busy bee, Carl, comes buzzing around Bob the tree, and Bob wants nothing to do with him. After a bit of a confrontation, the two learn about each other and quickly become friends.
Time for another contest!! This one is #50PreciousWords where ALL 50 words are as important as the one before and the one after! Thanks for taking the time to read mine!
“You didn’t do your bell-work, again!” shouted mom.
“To your room!” demanded dad.
Together, they cried.
After time-out, they asked, “What’s so hard about bell-work?”
“I don’t have enough time,” said Isaac.
“How can we help?”
“Can you take me to school on time?”
They looked at each other.

I received a bachelor's degree in musical theatre in 2004 and an MBA in 2012. Since completing my MBA, writing has turned into a passion. However, it was not until my son was born that I turned toward writing for children. I began writing a young adult novel and reached the halfway point when I realized how much I wanted to be writing for a younger audience.
Since changing my path into a focused journey toward children's literature, have written several early readers, short stories, poems, and picture books. I constantly explore new themes, styles and ideas.
I am particularly attracted to rhyming schemes, patterns, and meters that work well. When a pattern lines up with the thought and idea expressed in any particular line, I find myself giggling uncontrollably. While writing, nothing can replace the feeling I get from a comfortable rhyme landing perfectly.
Over the past 7 years, have the pleasure of learning from children each and every day. II serve as the director for a performing arts program that sees hundreds of students every week. I also am the co-director for a summer art academy where we have classes in every art discipline imaginable, including culinary arts and creative writing. My books are also inspired by these kiddos.
