Welcome, and thank you so much for visiting my site! Recently, I've been doing a lot of work in the picture book world. I am a We Need Diverse Books mentorship finalist, a Writing with the Stars mentorship recipient (working with Stacy McAnulty--yay!), a Children's Book Academy Yuyi Morales scholarship recipient, and a Highlights Foundation scholarship recipient.
Currently, I have a few funny picture book manuscripts in the works, and I recently finished the nonfiction recounting of the first U.S. Olympic judo team, a multicultural team that represented America honorably in Tokyo in 1964. With the help of Minoru Tonai, recipient of the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette, I've written a nonfiction book telling the story of Colorado Governor Ralph Carr and the Tonai family, prisoners of the Amache, an American concentration camp.
I'm also the author of a young adult paranormal romance titled Devil.May.Care. Feel free to check out my site to see what else I've been up to!
