I'm living proof for kids: You really can grow up to be a children's book author! 

Allow me to

introduce myself!

As a work-for-hire writer, I get a steady stream of assignments from publishers. I've seen new books

I've written hit library and bookstore shelves

every year since 2007. My programs cover:

  • my personal path to writing children's books,

  • how work-for-hire authoring works,

  • how creativity figures in, whether writing fiction or nonfiction,

  • how the publishing process works,

  • and more!

Each program is tailor-designed for

your class, grade, or school.

I'd love to meet your students!


That's me: a small child with big dreams

"The class enjoyed it and especially loved how you wrote a book about Minecraft! We were so excited to see 5 of your books in our school library!" - Jill Ollari, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central School District
