About the Author

Always ready for a creative challenge, I have worked in the fields of advertising, television, and design. My most inspiring creative challenge was raising my three kids and the bedtime stories turned into sagas complete with drawings and sparkles. We lived in a forest on a lake which, naturally, set the scene for the magic that came to life on the page.

Navigating the bumps of single parenthood I focused on loving and strong ideals. Themes of self-reliance, tolerence, self-worth and caring for the planet were present in our home and now are the basis of my books.

My books reach out to kids of all sizes who dream big.
