Considered an authority on children's books, I write about tree forts, challenging quests, exploding rockets, monster lobsters and creepy graveyards. I support new writers by visiting schools and libraries, presenting at literary festivals, and delivering tailored workshops. I also offer mentorships and regularly serve on juries for national writing competitions. In addition to fiction, I freelance for travel magazines about my family's sailing (mis)adventures aboard our boat, Cape Fear.
