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, a Cynthia Levison Writing Barn Picture Book Biography 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. Also, 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!
