About Me:

Writer, word gatherer
wanderer of Wisconsin
sometimes witty, wise, wacky 
willful worrier of Wetlands. 
Wondering which work to write next.

I grew up in Iowa along the Mississippi River.
where I was once tetherball
champion at Camp WaMaKa.

Summer mornings were for swim lessons, 
a quick lunch
and back to the pool with friends.

Then along came Nancy Drew, 
Bess, and Laura Ingalls—
books have always had 
an important role in my life. 

One of the best parts of being a teacher
is talking about all the wonderful books
available to kids and encouraging
future authors.

Thanks for joining me on this journey.
