Welcome and thanks for stopping by my website!

Watch "Stories" -- my new writing parody of Lorde's hit song "Royals." Enjoy!

I made it into episode 5 of "Authors reading online reviews." This is too funny. Thanks to Marc Nobleman for putting these together.

This is where you can learn a little more about me and the books I've published and ones that will be out soon. You can also buy my books here--just click on the covers. If you'd like to schedule me for a book signing, school or library visit, receive book announcements, or just say hi, please send me an email.

Check out articles Iíve written, my corporate writing experience, or see where I'll be doing author events. And I invite you to watch my book trailers if you're not familiar with my books. Please pour yourself a coffee and stay awhile. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!

Watch the trailer, mateys!

A Gluten-Free Birthday for Me! is available now! Order a copy today. Check out the sweet book trailer! Big thanks to Tim McCanna (music and production), his daughter Sophie (voice) and my illustrator Jennifer E. Morris.

A Gluten-Free Birthday for Me!, illustrated by Jennifer E. Morris, is now available from Albert Whitman & Co. I've been amazed at how many moms have told me their children are gluten-intolerant and I hope this story shows kids that it's not only okay and totally normal to live a gluten-free life, but delicious too! Personally, I'm in love with the dog.

Big thanks to friend and culinary expert Rebecca Salo, for the delicious treat recipes at the back of the book!

Robots, Robots Everywhere! is available now! Order your copy today. Check out the trailer (with robotty music by Tim McCanna):

I'm so excited! I just learned that The Museum of Flight in Seattle uses Robots, Robots Everywhere! at the start of every pre-k and kindergarden program! "We have been pioneering and testing robot programs with pre-K and Kindergarten students to great success. Your book is the best book we have found about robots so far! We love it, and start each of our programs with it."

Robots, Robots Everywhere!, illustrated by award-winner Bob Staake, is Little Golden Book (Random House) available now! I'm still pinching myself that I am part of the Little Golden Books family. We're talking The Poky Little Puppy and Scuffy the Tugboat territory here...except now robots!

Books (When It's Done), a Pitch Perfect parody of Cups (When I'm Gone) by me!

I wanted to share with you a video I made that I hope you'll enjoy! I've sung a parody of that fun Anna Kendrick Cups (When I'm Gone) song, called Books (When It's Done). I gave it some new writer lyrics. I even learned the pattern (it took awhile!). Fellow SCBWI-er and our new ARA Tim McCanna, graciously helped me record my singing of the song in his studio. The rest was up to me, so I hope you like it! If you enjoy it, please like it, share it, tweet it, or whatever you want.
