Coming at you from Austin, Texas.

Thanks for visiting! I’m a practicing picture book writer and poet. In picture books, I love silly, off-beat yet commercial stories and quirky worldviews that validate and explore the full spectrum of kiddo experience. I like to think of my sensibility along the lines of if William Steig and Tina Fey had a love child–I like strong emotion and slapstick, smart slapstick if possible! The kidlit community is really special, and I’m a proud member of SCBWI, Inked Voices, KidLit Twitter, 12×12, and Storystorm. Additionally, my first book of poetry, Singing Without Melody, comes out with Galileo Press in 2022, after having been a finalist for the 2020 Small Harbor Prize and the 2020 Eyewear Press international prize. Cheers!
