Hi! Thanks for visiting.
I'm an award-winning author and a former K-3 teacher who enjoys school, library and conference visits to share my books, my passion for writing, and to give students tips based on the years I scored grades 3-11 student essays.
This is my latest, an interactive book that keeps kids guessing. The desert is full of surprises. Who leaves x-shaped tracks? Who has orange and black beady skin? Open the book and find out. Each time you do, you're bound to find something new. Fun to read-again-and-again.
Children love Counting Little Geckos (60,000+ sold). Parents and teachers appreciate the FREE Teaching Guide
with 50 activities.
I'm thrilled to have been awarded the 2016 Judy Goddard Award for children's literature given by the Arizona State Library Association and Libraries Ltd.
