I've been married for twenty years and am constantly inspired by my two beautiful daughters, an adventurous Bullmasador adopted from The Humane Society, and an adorable Beagle/Pointer pup who was rescued from the Everglades. I write humorous middle-grade novels with heart and quirky picture books. I'm the FL SCBWI Newsletter Editor and Critique Group Coordinator, an Administrator on the SCBWI Blueboard, and a founding member of From the Mixed-Up Files…of Middle-Grade Authors. I’ve been published in Highlights magazine, and two of my manuscripts placed in the 80th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition.
I love writing challenges like PiBoIdMo, NaPiBoWriWee, and NaNoWriMo, and am thrilled to belong to five amazing local and online critique groups that help me whip all those manuscripts into shape.
