Several of my picture book projects are being

queried to agents, and I'm also writing a

math-themed picture book that, shall I say,

has taken me down an unexpected path! 

2021 was a good year for my novel project. A beta reader AND a local book group read it through and their feedback was both encouraging and helpful.  Also, a friend in Holland sent me his wonderful new research paper that relates to my novel's 17th century setting. 'So excited that this project is pulling together! 

I am active in several writing groups and have participated in numerous writing craft seminars including...  NFFest, #waterpoemproject, #fallwritingfrenzy and #Storystorm. I 'm a member of Historical Novel Society, SCBWI, Julie Hedlund's 12x12 Picture Book Challenge, and most recently, Jess Keating's Epic Author's Academy. I am enjoying my writing journey as much as ever! 


Special thanks to the many authors, agents, editors, researchers and scientists who have happily shared their wisdom with me.
