Welcome to my web site! I am a children’s book author and I love reading, too. My chapter book, Like a Maccabee, is a PJ Library book club selection. I am also the creator of the website Jewish Books for Kids. I am a former chair of the Sydney Taylor Book Award Committee (Association of Jewish Libraries), which honors exceptional works about the Jewish experience. My favorite part about being an author? Visiting schools, meeting young readers, and eating lunch in the cafeteria—especially when it’s grilled cheese day!
I am often inspired by my favorite books and hope one day I’ll make my very own corncob doll, like Laura’s in Little House on the Prairie. When I am not reading, I am probably typing away at my desk, surrounded by my three naughty (but nice) dogs.
My forthcoming picture book, The Sundown Kid, will be released in 2016 by August House.
I am represented by Rising Bear Literary Agency.
