Stories for children, inspired by family and friendship.
“Like Judy Blume, she tackles serious issues but provides many opportunities for laughter.”
-School Library Journal
Bartleby Huddle is a sweet, happy child, but he doesn’t utter a single word—until he has something important to say.
I’m so glad you stopped by. I wish we could chat over lemonade or a cup of cocoa while hanging out in my lush backyard on a sunny day, or in my cozy kitchen if it happens to be raining – as it sometimes(!) does in the Pacific Northwest. But maybe a visit here on my website is the next best thing to chatting in person, so come on in. Let’s talk!
Writing and Editing Highlights
In addition to occasionally writing books for children, I’ve been professionally committed to publishing books for young readers for more than 15 years. I’ve worked closely with myriad formats and various genres for young readers of all ages, from novelties for toddlers, picture books for preschoolers, and beginning readers to chapter books, tween novels, and young adult fiction. I’m an experienced copywriter and seasoned writing coach, and I have also written and edited content for magazines, newspapers, and other print media.

Bartleby Huddle is a sweet, happy child, though he is curiously … quiet. Ah, but when young Bartleby does at last speak, he has something important to say – and everyone in his loud, busy family stops to listen to the wise and wonderful toddler!
