Hi! I am a writer of children's books and an elementary school
teacher. I am currently writing a Chapter Books Series for children
ages seven to ten years old.
My "JUST JUNIPER" book series is about a seven-year-old girl,
Sophia and her dog Juniper, a two-year-old Golden Retriever. In the
series Sophia and Juniper get in difficult and scary situations. The
adventures of Sophia, Juniper, and their friends will mesmerize young
readers and keep them eagerly turning the pages of the books.
I have been teaching seven and eight-year-olds for the past 30 years.
Seeing a child get totally absorbed in reading a chapter book for the first time is one of the most rewarding experiences a teacher can have. I hope my "JUST JUNIPER Series" motivates young children to
become lifelong readers.
I am currently writing more books for the JUST JUNIPER SERIES. In
addition I am working on two picture books and also writing a non-
fiction series about Endangered Animals.
All my books are written for young readers as they were my
motivation and inspiration. I should also mention that they were my
first critics and editors!
I read the first draft of all my books to my second graders and asked
for their opinion and critique. It was their enthusiasm, honesty, and
demand "Please write one more JUST JUNIPER Adventure" for my
stories that motivated me to continue writing books for the series.
What else should you know about me? I love traveling around the
world and have traveled extensively. I am married to a "Renaissance" man who is an elementary school teacher, an opera singer and
chorus director of the Miami Lyric Opera. We have one adult son who
fills us with pride and joy.
I live in Miami and love the ocean!
Love and Light,
