Many years ago, my husband introduced some national treasures to me. He took me to a national park for our first vacation back in our dating years. Later, we got engaged and then married in two other national parks.

I love our national parks. I also love writing for children. I am writing to share these treasures and excitement with young readers.

I studied anthropology and political science at Indiana University and earned a Master’s degree at DePaul University.  I am also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Originally from Chicago, I live in Northern California with my husband, two children, and pup.  I have traveled to many national parks and dream about the next one.
