About me . . .

I’m the author of TAKE ME TO YOUR BBQ (Disney Hyperion) illustrated by Adam McCauley, THE THREE BEARS’ CHRISTMAS and THE THREE BEARS’ HALLOWEEN (Holiday House), both illustrated by Paul Meisel. Upcoming is A BEAR’S YEAR, to be published by Schwartz and Wade. My poetry has appeared in children’s magazines and anthologies.

Texas has remained my home. Where else can I get the world’s best BBQ, hear great Texas music, or look for UFO’s outside of Marfa from a viewing station built precisely for that purpose by the State of Texas?

When I’m not writing, I might be reading, doing yoga, making jewelry, or traveling somewhere with my incredibly supportive husband, Glen.
