I am a freelance writer and book reviewer living in the Midwest. I enjoy writing for children and promoting literacy. I graduated from Wichita State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English, with minors in Education and Minority Studies. I have many years of experience writing Standard Operating Procedures Manuals (SOPs) for various companies. I write book reviews for Tiger Tales Books, The Childrens Literature Comprehensive Database, Book Pleasures and NGKids. One of my short stories for children, Big Red, is featured at www.smories.com.
To help me achieve my goal of becoming a better writer I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), The Association of Children's Authors and Illustrators of Color (ACAIC), the Kansas City Writers Meetup Group and I have completed course work at The Institute of Children's Literature.
I have always been a fan of Maya Angelou. As a child my favorite stories were folktales. I loved reading about Paul Bunyan and John Henry. As I grew older I learned to love Isaac Asmov and Stephen King.
I have many projects that I am working on. My picture book project "Princess Penelope and the Pickle Festival will be out Summer 2012. I am also working on a middle grade novel "The Crystals of Herismos" which will be out in 2013.
Writing, reading audio books, walking and the arts.
