Launch day




Welcome to my author website!

I am the author of a non-fiction book about philanthropy for young adults, Creating Change Through Family Philanthropy: The Next Generation.

Now I'm working on several children's books. My writing touches on a variety of topics - from maple trees to jazz trombone. You can read more about me here.

I like to write books that can help the youngest readers find ways to create social change. I think a big opportunity of children's books is to illuminate pathways toward a more just, equitable, and sustainable world.

There are times as I sit on the floor with my two children and a picture book piled on my lap that Arundathi Roy's stunning words come to mind: Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

From time to time, I'll share resources for other writers and parents of young children (and aunts and uncles and grandparents and friends) who, like me, seek picture books that may help strengthen those breaths.
