Where did you learn to write?

I'm still learning! In 2018, I completed courses by Susanna Leonard Hill, Judy Blume, Alayne Kay Christian, R.L. Stine, James Patterson and more. This year, I'm a member of Storyteller Academy taking courses from Arree Chung and Jim Averbeck.


How do you find time to write (and take so many courses)?

I took a productivity course in 2017 🙂


What is your favorite exercise?

Yoga, especially down dog when forgotten snacks ricochet around on the floor.


Describe your perfect day.

Spending time with my wonderful husband (imported from The Netherlands), cracking up with my six year old (blue glasses wearing) son and writing picture books in a cloud of dog farts, courtesy of Bryce the Bordoodle.


Did you always want to be a writer?

Yes, but I had to work through some self-doubt before committing to this path. I also wanted to be a teacher for speech and hearing impaired children for many years, but then I studied psychology and business instead.


What is your biggest regret in life?

A few years ago I was driving home and saw a fried pie food truck driving in the opposite direction. Every fiber of my being told me to take a U-turn and follow it. But. I. Just. Drove. Home.
