Welcome to my website!

Here you will find imaginary tales about silly dinosaurs, beginning ballet dancers, and fun-loving grandmas and grandpas.   You’ll also find true stories about an amazing animal painter, a Jewish child hidden in plain sight during WWII, and a brave girl who became a brilliant jazz musician.  If you want, you can learn a little about me and why I write for children, or you can send me a message.  I love hearing from my readers!  Have fun looking around, and thanks for visiting.
