What's new:

Hi all and welcome to my newsletter!

My picture book publisher has strongly encouraged all of us to collect emails and keep in touch with people this way in case a social media app goes down. Think about it--if Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram suddenly goes dark one day, how will you keep in touch with people if you don't already text or email with them?

So, here I am with sparkly new newsletter. Each month, I will include what's new with my publishing adventures, what I'm reading, writing tips, a shameless dog photo, and a shameless book plug.'s what's new with my publishing adventures. For those of you who don't already know, I have signed with a new agent, Tricia Lawrence of Erin Murphy Literary Agency. This is important, as she will be the person to help get my writing into editors' hands.

I also have my debut picture book coming out with Cardinal Rule Press on July 1, 2022! It's called THREE POCKETS FULL: A story of love, family, and tradition. To help this girl out, you can add it to your Goodreads "To Read" list and/or pre-order it. Click on the image for more information.

Writing tips:

If you are a picture book writer, I strongly suggest subscribing to CNN's The Good Stuff. You'll get a weekly email of good news to counteract all the bad news out there! What's better than that! The email always has inspiring stories that could easily spark picture book ideas, fiction or nonfiction. Click on the image below to check it out.
