Welcome

Thanks so much for visiting my website!
I’m an author, an artist, and a believer in a better world emerging when we truly connect with each other.

Isn’t it amazing that stories can help us with that?

paintin-girl-with-book1.jpgWhen you’ve been
dreaming up stories for a long time,

stories starring girls and boys
who haven’t gotten much
of a chance
to roam their own books,

then:
words and more words,
tumble out to fill pages.

This is why
I feel a great need to write fast,
like I must grow a bookshelf
for all my girls and boys to live in,
surrounded by love
curled up in their very own books,
tucked in cozy,
beautiful covers pulled tight.
