I am a teacher, a writer, a mother, and an animal lover. I believe in the power of stories and helping children find their own voices early in life through the written word. I live in a sprawling old house in the Houston Heights with my daughter, her fiance, and a changing number of dogs and cats.
I teach elementary school in the Houston public school system and conduct private writing workshops for children out of my home. I have written and published some personal essays over the years. Willowmena's Quest is my first published book.
