I am the author of books for children, including the middle grade verse novel HUGGING THE ROCK (Tricycle Press, September 2006), OLIVER’S MUST-DO LIST (Boyd’s Mills Press, October 2005), CAN I PRAY WITH MY EYES OPEN? (Hyperion, 1999), the easy reader SMALLS SAILS TO FREEDOM (Lerner/Millbrook, 2006), and the forthcoming easy reader ENRIQUE ESPARZA, BOY AT THE ALAMO (Lerner/Millbrook).
I have served on the faculty for the Highlights Foundation Chautauqua Conference and was the Writer-in-Residence for San Jose Community School working with at-risk students. I'm also a former newspaper columnist for the New Orleans Times Picayune and past instructor for the Institute of Children’s Literature.
I'm represented by Jodi Reamer, Writers House. Friends welcome. I'm a gabby sort.
