About Me
As much as I wish I looked like my curly-top cartoon, this is the real me. I have a background in gifted education, but currently work full time as a writer and creator/seller of teacher resources (most recently, task cards). I have over 100 nonfiction books children in print, which you can see here. In addition, I have written several teacher resource books. The ones I am most proud of are a series of Creative and Critical Thinking Skills books that I wrote for Evan Moor. 

Although I enjoy writing books, my passion is creating high quality, ready-to-use teaching resources which I sell on the TeachersPayTeachers website. I believe our future depends on our children being able to think creatively and critically, so I incorporate higher level thinking skills into almost everything I create. Many of my products are also Common Core aligned. About a year ago I started creating Task Cards and now have over 125 sets of them in my store. 

On Teacher Pay Teacher's Top 100 Sellers list, I am currently #2. I am also the #1 seller for grades 3-5.

I am also the author of:

I am the mother of two terrific teens. David is in his second year of college at Evergreen State college in Olympia, Washington. Lucy is a thriving high school junior who is active in her school's theater arts program. I also have a stunning boyfriend and an annoying yet lovable cat. We live in the Seattle area which is beautiful...and wet.

When I am not at the computer, I love to travel, read, bike, play racquetball, do ZUMBA and crochet obnoxiously colorful hats. 

Please feel free to contact me with comments, ideas, questions, etc.
