About Me

For as long as anyone can remember, I had a book in my hands. During the summer of my third grade year, I read every book in the Library's children's section A to Z.  

I loved to write, make up stories, and create elaborate treasure hunts and maps for my brother and sister. So I went to college and wrote for four years to earn a degree in English and Political Science. Then I took my love of writing and telling stories to Law School.

I'm passionate about using board books, picture books, and chapter books to make reading and nature fun for children. And I also love photographing animals and nature.

I live with my amazing Pixiebob roommate. And we both miss his sweet sister.

I love connecting kids to nature through stories, photographs, and hikes.
