My Neighborhood: Places and Faces
My passion for words began at an early age, and I still have many of the poems, novels, comic strips, and stories that I created when I was young. My first chance to officially see my name in print came in grade school, when the local paper printed my letter about the plight of baby harp seals. My first book, a picture book called Not Enough Beds!, was published in 1999, and I now have a total of 90 published titles for children, many of them nonfiction titles for younger readers. My first middle grade novel, Turn Left at the Cow, a mystery set in rural Minnesota, was published in 2013.
My writing background is complemented by sixteen years of experience working in the book publishing industry. Now that I am a full-time writer, I also enjoy teaching writing classes and visiting schools.
