About Me

I’m a freelance writer, children’s author, creative consultant, and award-winning poet. After a successful career in biotech law, I obtained my MFA from and taught creative writing at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Currently, I consult on manuscripts (E) and speak at schools, museums, and libraries (E). Through our successful collaboration, Write On Productions, kidlit best seller Victoria J. Coe and I offer writers a new way to get on track and stay on track, including tools, resources, and exclusive digital content. Our first publication, Writing Kidlit 101: A Self-Guided Course, released in January 2023. Our second book, Writing Kidlit 102: Your First Draft, is available now. We know how hard it is to write because we’ve been there. Both of us dreamed of writing kidlit while juggling kids and careers. Now having sold more than 350,000 books between us, we can’t wait to help you achieve your dream.
