About the books, the author & the agent
About the Books
My first picture book, Goldie Blox and the Dunk Tank, sells worldwide through Toys R Us, Amazon.com and independent toy stores. Part of the Goldie Blox franchise, the book empowers budding engineers to use building and spatial skills to solve a problem--in this case, a very dirty dog who hates baths. Says one reviewer, "I LOVE it that a girl's interest in narrative has been combined with emergent engineering skills. What a great way to organically encourage a girl to feel confident in her ability to BUILD!"
From nonfiction to lyrical, humorous to bedtime, difficult subjects to targeted, highly marketable stories, I am consistently adding to a stable of texts that are workshopped and ready to go.

About the Agent
I am currently seeking representation. The agent of my dreams is brave--willing to champion stories that break the rules. Stories that need to be told.
In return, you'll work with a talent and a professional: someone who understands the business, meets deadlines, enjoys collaboration, appreciates a critical eye and cares most of all about getting the best work possible in front of a very deserving and discerning audience.
Oh yes, and we'll laugh. A lot. Let's talk.
