Why do you I write. Is there a philosophy behind the words?
I write stories to inspire children, spark imagination, and create a positive world.
Can you share with our readers what your favorite books are and why they’re on your list?
1. Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak: I absolutely love the imagination that is created as well as the hidden message learned.
2. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss: Every book Dr. Seuss writes is so fin but I especially love this one for the valuable lesson of taking care of the Earth.
3. Love You Forever by Robert Munsch: This story pulls at my heart strings. As a mother, the love you have for your child is the greatest gift in the world. I cry every time I read this to my children.
Can you tell us a little about your writing style?
Magical Realism. I love to create imagination but I also love to speak on topics that will help encourage children to stay true to themselves. I want all my stories to have a hidden lesson that will change their mindset for the better.

What do you hope to accomplish?
I am beyond passionate to excite a child about reading. I want my stories to create imagination and I want them to really learn from it.
