I am from nowhere and everywhere. I have lived in Sweden, Lebanon, South Africa and the UK, but I now live in a small Connecticut town which boasts the largest tree in the state.
I have always loved books and writing and have been fortunate to work in publishing in one way or another my whole life. I started as staff writer for a local newspaper and then moved to London and worked as an editor at Virgin Books. When I moved back to the US to live in San Francisco, where I was lucky to travel the world selling translation rights for IDG Books.
I started writing children’s books when I was home with my own young children. My first picture book I WANT TO EAT YOUR BOOKS was published in 2015. I have recently written four more picture books, and I am now writing a middle-grade novel. When not writing I tutor high school and college students. I am also a college essay editor, helping high school juniors and seniors find their voices to tell their stories.
