Hi! Thanks for visiting.
I'm an award-winning author and a former K-3 teacher who enjoys school, library and conference visits to share my books, my passion for writing, and to give students tips based on the years I scored grades 3-11 student essays.
This is my latest, an interactive book that keeps kids guessing. The desert is full of surprises. Who leaves x-shaped tracks? Who has orange and black beady skin? Open the book and find out. Each time you do, you're bound to find something new. Fun to read-again-and-again.
Children love Counting Little Geckos (50,200+ sold). Parents and teachers appreciate the FREE Teaching Guide
with 50 activities.
