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!

Listen to Young People Representation Matters

Hey Folks. Let's talk about story for a minute. There is a TV show that has a strong fandom – not gonna name names. But, basically, their finale was bad storytelling. Promises to the viewer unfilled and such. Out of Character moments. Whatever. I’ll write about that...
