I am a children’s author. I love to write books and poems for children. Most visitors to my website are book-loving kids, parents, or teachers. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your visit! And keep reading!

WHAT'S NEW

Join dinosaur lovers in the march as T.Rex lights the torch in volcanic flames to start THE PREHISTORIC GAMES. Click on book title (on left bar) for free resources: a curriculum guide by Dr. Barbara F. Hartigan, a library program guide, and a birthday party planner!

On a faraway planet, deep in space…
William Shatner of Star Trek fame narrates LOOKING FOR A LULLABY, my picture book adaptation of a TV episode of the fabulous preschool show, THE CLANGERS. Adorable screen grabs from the animated show accompany the story.

North Pole animals share an upcoming ARCTIC CHRISTMAS with southern penguin friends that pop in for the holiday.

I have been dreaming about SCARY PLANTS! while researching and writing a level 4 reader (Grosset & Dunlap/Smithsonian, 2017). Did you know that the Australian Gympie-Gympie tree’s stinging hairs squirt poison into whatever touches them?
