Books for Kids

...and Kids at Heart

ABOUT ME

I write silly, weird and heartwarming books.

I love spontaneity, flip flops, hammocks, 90s music, daydreaming, reading, soup dumplings and stopping whatever I’m doing when the Princess Bride is on TV.

I spent too many years in a finance career chasing someone else’s dream before I traded in my spreadsheets for manuscripts. Now I am 100% writer…plus 30% loving husband, 40% embarrassing father, 22% RV enthusiast and 12% BBQ connoisseur. Wait – is that 204%? I’m also 100% bad at math.

I live in Los Angeles with my super-supportive wife, licky border collie and two hilarious kids who use potty words to complete Mad Libs and provide the inspiration for my stories.

I’m a member of SCBWI and the 12X12 Challenge. I have attended numerous writing conferences and participated in 50 Precious Words, Spring Fling Kid Lit, ReFoReMo, StoryStorm, PBPitch, PitMad and more.
