I’m an award-winning author of the picture books, Halloween Good Night (Atheneum, Simon & Schuster), Violet and the Woof (Katherine Tegen Books, HarperCollins), A Year With Mama Earth (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers 2019). My other publications include poetry and essays in a broad range of literary journals. I have an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University and am a Sustainable Arts Foundation awardee. My children’s and general market works are represented by Victoria Wells Arms of Wells Arms Literary, and religious works by Karen Neumair of Credo Communications.

I live in rural Michigan with my husband, six children, and two cats. Find the latest updates at my blog, Works in Progress.
