I loved reading classic fairytales and fantasy adventures when I was a child. These books were my magic carpet rides, and the illustrated pages were doorways into other worlds. They sparked my imagination, shaped my ideas about life, and helped me figure out the kind of person I wanted to be.
I always enjoyed inventing my own stories too. And now, my books are not unlike the ones that inspired me. They're fast paced adventures, with lots of surprising twists and turns. And I use universal themes and symbols that still ring true to the modern ear. My heroine's are strong women who overcome formidable obstacles. And although it's always a harrowing journey to a happy ending, they never resort to violence to resolve conflict. My goal is to leave readers with a deeper understanding of what it means to be a strong women, and to be inspired to believe that they too have the inner resources and guidance to help solve their own life challenges. My books are for kids of all ages, (including adults who have secretly never grown up.)
