Welcome to my website! I am a children's author living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was born in Fairhope, Alabama, but spent most of my childhood in Japan.
My newest book, HOW TO BABYSIT A GRANDPA, (April 2012, Knopf Books for Young Readers) is a humorous picture book about a little boy and his grandpa. My previous book, ALWAYS MY BROTHER, (June 2009, Tilbury House Publishers) is a story about a serious topic -- sibling loss. Check out the links to learn more.
In the summer, my husband and I serve as backcountry volunteers in Grand Teton National Park. We live in a patrol cabin that has no running water or electricity. Elk, deer, bears, and an occasional mountain lion are our neighbors.
