Welcome.

Thanks for visiting my web page!

I’m a writer, a poet, a reader, a mom, and a bunch of other exciting things. But these pages are devoted to my love of writing, especially writing for kids. And a special joy for writing and reading poetry – everybody needs poetry.

I write because putting words on paper for you — a reader — is the best thing I think I can do in the world. It’s hard and I learn more every single day.

I live in Wisconsin — maybe thirty minutes from Saint Paul, Minnesota with my two teens, my husband, and our two dogs.

I hope you’ll enjoy my writing experiments — and experiences!

I was asked, what I thought, an easy question recently. “What is one thing I’ve learned in 2020 about being anti-racist.” Yes! Right! I’ve got this. Right? What hasn’t 2020 taught me? I mean, if you are existing in 2020, how can you not learn about being anti-racist? ...
