I’m delighted to be a member of Pittsburgh’s vibrant community of authors and illustrators! I’m also an active member of Pennwriters and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators., and I’m fortunate to be able to attend several author events throughout the Eastern United States. Here are some places to find me in the next few months:


SCBWI Winter Conference: February 8-10, 2019

New York, NY

After the flat-out incredible experience I had last year at this conference, composed of invaluable master classes taught by such children’s literature luminaries as Gail Carson Levine, Linda Sue Park, Laurie Halse Anderson, and Jane Yolen, there’s no way I’m missing out on the next installment! Meet me at Penn Station?

Pennwriters Annual Conference: May 17-19, 2019

This is one of my favorite annual writing events, and it’s in my backyard this year. I even get to present a workshop on short fiction!
