Author's Experience

All of my jobs have centered on my love of the written word: from my college days of bookselling, tutoring, and a journalism internship, to a professional technical writing and editing career soon after. Since having children, I have stayed home to care for my family and write. My non-fiction children's articles have appeared in FACES and CALLIOPE magazines. For 15 years I regularly wrote maternal and child health articles for a parenting wellness blog. My debut book, ALL ABOUT MARIE CURIE, won the IBPA Benjamin Franklin gold award in the young reader nonfiction category (2022). I have been writing nonfiction books for Scholastic Children's Press since 2022. I'm a member of SCBWI and the Authors Guild.
