Hi and thank you for visiting my website. I'm a writer and have published almost nineteen books and many articles and poems for children of all ages. I am an active member of my local and national Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and an active council member of the Rutgers University Council of Children's Literature. In a previous life, I spent fifteen years in corporate Human Resources in a variety of roles all involving writing and staffing. My formal education includes an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Business and a Master's Degree, with distinction, in Industrial Psychology. I am a graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature and reside in New Jersey with my husband, children and three furry rescues.
