Common Questions

What's your favorite color?
Green! It's a bright, happy color that represents fresh starts.

What's your favorite animal?
Frogs! And dogs. Frogs because they're funny, dogs because I can cuddle with them.

How did you publish your book?
I self-publish, which means I hire professionals to make sure my work is ready for the public. This gives me the most creative control of my projects.

How do you research?
Usually I read something interesting which makes me want to learn more. I go to my library and historical societies to read more. That's when the characters start to talk to me...

Thank you for your interest in my books!
My books for teens are most appropriate for ages 10 - 14 depending on the maturity of your child. If there is romance, it is sweet (never goes beyond a kiss or two).

My children's books are for ages 3 - 5 for reading with a parent, or 5 - 7 reading alone.
