I am focusing on novels at the moment if you would like a list or sample from my other writing in animation, television, films, shorts, and kid lit please send me a message. Thank you so much.
My Writing Journey
I love storytelling! I have professionally written kids' books, novels, short stories, screenplays, shorts, TV shows, graphic novels and magazine articles.
I wrote my first teen novel at age thirteen about a boy named Larry, on a typewriter. I never attempted to get it published, but my heart fell in love with telling stories. I am now focusing on my YA novels and will have an author page up when ready. Stay tuned for more about that.
In the meantime, here are some of the things I have worked on recently. Thanks so much for swinging by!
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.
