I love literature, libraries, and owls. I like kayaking and hiking and camping all over Oregon with my husband and 10-year old daughter. I like cats, adoption, my brother with Down syndrome and my lesbian mothers. I'm particularly fond of Ben & Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. I'm Contributing Editor at The Writer Magazine, and a frequent speaker at writing conferences, festivals, libraries, and schools. In 2019, Sasquatch Books will publish my Better with Books: Diverse Fiction to Open Minds and Ignite Empathy in Children.
