I grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, where I spent a happy childhood living in my imagination and writing stories in my head. It was only a matter of time before those stories spilled out onto the written page.
I have been published extensively in children's and national magazines, and my poetry won a top prize in the 2010 Writer's Digest Annual Poetry Competition. The Christmas Village and Return to Canterbury represent the culmination of my lifelong dream to write the kind of books I loved to read as a child.
THE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE won the 2013 Blogger Book Fair READER'S CHOICE AWARD for action/adventure.
