As both an author and feature magazine writer, I take my experience and talk with other adults interested in taking the writing journey. I will detail what people need to know that might take hours to research; from book lengths and publishing options to production and marketing. You get everything you need to know in one short session, including a hand-out that includes it all.

About the Author

I'm a mom, magazine contributor and full-time children's author for kids from 6-9. With almost eight books in my portfolio, I have lots of fun with four-legged friends in The Adventures of the Poodle Posse and Once upon a Poodle, and with a stubborn city girl in The Upside-Down Gardener. With a few Mom’s Choice Awards for excellence in Juvenile Fiction, a top pick on Amazon Children’s Bookshelf, great reviews from The Children’s Book Review and Midwest Book Review, and an endorsement from The Dove Foundation, I’m pretty immersed in children’s literature. And as much as I love writing kids tales, I love spending time in classrooms talking to them about the entire process.
