I've loved writing stories and poems ever since I can remember. When I became a mother I read lots of picture books to my children, and I enjoyed these books as much as my kids did. My son liked tools, so I looked for a book on tools for him, but couldn't find one. (This was before Bob the Builder.) Finally I wrote a tool book myself and sold it to Golden Books. Later I wrote another Golden Book titled I'll Share With You and a novel, Stray Cat. Over the years I've written stories and poems for Highlights, Ranger Rick, Hopscotch, Boys' Quest, and Spider. I also wrote an early reader called The Day David Wasn't There.
Now I am working on several picture books and a book about trees.
