 I’ve been a writer since the tender age of nine when I was bitten by a Jabberwocky, entered a state of literary amazement, and never fully recovered.
     For 15 years, I was a Silicon Valley copy editor, juggling engineering jargon. Now I’m a picture book author, juggling family and writing.
     I write in a variety of flavors: fictional stories filled with heart, nonfiction at the intersection of poetry and nature, and verse (both lovely and wacky).
      Aside from my picture book characters, I live with my inspiring kids and rocket-scientist husband in Redwood City, California. I’m an active member of several writers’ groups, the 12×12 Challenge, and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
     My nonfiction picture book, SMALL MATTERS: The Hidden Power of the Unseen, now available through all major distributors, offers readers (ages 4-9) a peek at nano-sized animal features, through a scanning electron microscope.

BookSmall Matters: The Hidden Power of the Unseen


Can something small matter at all? Of course it can! In this book for young readers (who know a thing or two about being small), you can take a super close look at details too little to be seen with the human eye. Powerful shots from scanning electron microscopes show shark skin, bird feathers, the hairs on a honeybee’s eye, and so much more, proving that tiny details can make a BIG difference.
