I write to inspire children to follow their dreams. My books are Mary Cassatt: Impressionist Painter, award-winning Charlie Russell, Tale-Telling Cowboy Artist, Maxfield Parrish: Painter of Magical Make-Believe, and the newest, Lotta Crabtree: Gold Rush Fairy Star.

I live with my family in Anacortes in the northwest corner of Washington State. When not writing, you might find me on our boat watching for whales in the nearby beautiful San Juan Islands or Canada.
