Hi there, I'm currently focusing on holiday romances and holiday comedies for the screen. Please get in touch if you are interested in working together,

Please also head over to my writing site

My Writing Journey

I love storytelling! I have professionally written kids' books, novels, short stories, screenplays, shorts, TV shows, graphic novels, and magazine articles.

At age thirteen, I wrote my first teen novel about a boy named Larry on a typewriter. I never attempted to get it published, but my heart fell in love with telling stories.


Stay tuned for more about that. 

In the meantime, here are some things I have worked on recently. Thanks so much for swinging by!

Picture Books 

Work for hire for Farfaria as one of their children's book writers. I completed 16 books for them from fall 2012-summer 2013, when I left to pursue my own projects.


Written by me-illustrated by others, click on the pics to the left to go to Farfaria. UPDATED SEPTEMBER 2015-Farfaria's titles are now available through iBooks.
