Do you love exploring science and nature? How about reading fun stories?

I'm a children's author, an illustrator, and a nature-enthusiast obsessed with bugs, slugs, and trees, among other things! I write stories about science and nature to share my own enthusiasm with others.

I'm the author of two picture books and one coloring book (Who Laid the Egg, The Rocket that Flew to Mars, and Bug, Bug, Spider).

I'd always wanted to write stories, but for a long time, I planned to write novels. At one point, I was even working on a fantasy series.

After I had kids, however, I started reading thousands of picture books, and somehow my focus changed just a little bit!
