Welcome to my official website. I write for young people, teach elementary school, and have children of my own. My life is full of kids, teens and young adults…real and fictitious…and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

I’m really interested in history so my books tend to have some element of the past in them. Even though my books are categorized as juvenile or YA fiction and non-fiction I’ve heard that people of all ages enjoy reading them.

When I’m not writing or teaching my own class, I enjoy visiting libraries and schools where I talk to students about my books. I also like to hear from readers, so feel free to write me!


Thanks for visiting my website,
