Once upon a time, I played with little metal cars in my rock-filled driveway. I listened to old-time mystery radio theater in my room and built yarn canopies between trees. I could never serve the volleyball in gym class but I could draw dragons that leapt off the page.
After 13 years of wearing plaid uniforms I went to art school. I graduated from Syracuse University, worked as a compositor in animation, and as an art director creating products for the scrapbooking market. My children inspire me every single day to be creative and do my best.
Today I write and illustrate books from my New Hampshire home. I still like yarn, and table tennis is my (only) game.
