About

In a rocking chair

Books are doors to special places. Finding just the right book can help reveal where you most belong. My background in both science and poetry helps me combine nonfiction elements into fictional stories that entertain while making the Universe a little more understandable.

Super agent Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represents my books. I’ve also published articles in the children’s magazines Odyssey, Faces, and AppleSeeds.

I’ve been a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) since 2008, in the Western Washington region.
