In Tulsa, Oklahoma, I grew up with two brothers. Storytime, finger-painting and cooking were my favorite class activities when I taught kindergarten in the Tulsa Public Schools. When school starts every year, I want a brand new box of crayons!
I love picture book writing, author visits, crayons and dogs! One of my hobbies is solving and creating puzzles.
