If you're gonna dream ...

make it a big one.


My father used to say, "If your gonna dream, make it a big one!"
As a writer who strives to create stories that inspire children to dream their biggest dream, I, in turn, am fulfilling my own. Growing up, I loved mysteries, ghost stories, animal-hero adventures and any biography I could get my hands on, and find I am still drawn to these timeless genres.
I write fictional and biographical picture books and young adult novels that also reflect my love of art and history. But no matter the topic, I endeavor to craft characters, situations and worlds that will stay with readers long after the last page.
