I was born and raised in the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio, a beautiful city built, like Rome, on seven hills-wooded hills of oak, walnut, and maple where I and my childhood imagination ran wild. I enjoy throwing myself into situations which give me an opportunity to explore and grow. I joined the Peace Corps in my late twenties and went to live in Cameroon in western Africa for almost four years. It was there I first realized I wanted to write for children. When I returned, I threw myself into a writing class, where I had the good fortune to meet Yuyi Morales and Karen Ehrhardt, two marvelous children’s book creators with whom I founded the “Revisionaries” – a group of picture book authors and illustrators determined to create new classics of children’s literature.
