Latest Developments: I have three new books coming out in Spring 2019! Watch for an update in September!

I offer professional critiques for developing children's book writers. See the contact page if you'd like to get in touch about this.


Thank you for stopping by!  This is the website for my children's books.  I write whichever ideas stay long enough to become pests. I've written picture books, early chapter books, and young adult novels.  I just got bitten by the middle grade bug, and am now busy working on that manuscript. I'm a prisoner of my own creative mind.

My first book is now available in bookstores! Check out "Books" for more on that. I have several other picture book manuscripts as well.  Many of my stories feature African-American characters.  And when I say "characters," I mean it!  I love to write about silly, naughty, intelligent, mistake-making kids. 

I've finished three young adult novels, and have an idea brewing for a fourth. My novels are a perfect place to dump all of my crazy, disturbed ideas, and I seem to have plenty of those!  Probably because I remember my teenage years so vividly...and they were...colorful.

Feel free to browse around, and do come back again soon.  This website is a work in progress...just like me.
