Hello Everyone! I am a former special education teacher, and am currently a full-time children's writer, book blogger and freelance editor. My first picture book, Hammering for Freedom: The William Lewis Story (Lee and Low) debuted on September 24, 2018. It is a School Library Journal selection and received positive Kirkus and Horn Book reviews. My second picture book, The Oldest Student: How Mary Walker Learned to Read (Random House) will debut in January 2020. I penned African Americans of Chattanooga: A History of Unsung Heroes, and I earned the 2014 SCBWI Letter of Merit for an unpublished multicultural novel. I am the author of Getting a Job in the Food Industry, Getting the Most Out of MOOCs, and The Right Health Care Degree for Me, all published by Rosen Publishing, and Playwriting, published by Cavendish Square in January, 2017. I review books for The New York Journal of Books. Thanks for visiting!
