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 Author

Who knew that acting, improv and copywriting would be the perfect preparation for picture book writing? I live in Austin, Texas, where I'm an active member of SCBWI. Honors include:

2016 Austin SCBWI Scholarship for Creators of Diverse Characters – Finalist, Top 5 entries

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.
