• Sam and Sarah see the world, in Library Mouse, A World to Explore.

As the author and/or illustrator of over forty children’s books, I have a lot of experience in creative thinking, writing, editing, sketching and illustrating. I love sharing my work and talking about the process of writing with children, touching on the universal themes of brainstorming, drafting, revision and editing. I look forward to school visits!

Stuffed animal sleep-over!

The Scotch Plains Public Library sponsored a stuffed animal sleepover this weekend! I went to read to the children and their animals, and as this picture shows, the animals enjoyed reading on their own once the children had gone home to bed. Here they’re enjoying “Library Mouse, A World to Explore”!
