Picture Books

My picture book stories start as deep, personal questions of life’s fundamental mysteries. Questions like what it means to get older, why we are afraid of the dark, and how to yield. In writing the books I don’t hope to answer these questions. Rather, I hope to let them play out, mingling in my mind and, later, yours. In our busy, modern world, we rarely make the time for childlike contemplation. I write so that my readers, no matter the age, are invited to make a little space and time to marvel at the world and so to better marvel at our place among it.

I am currently shopping two manuscripts, The Moon is Afraid of the Dark, and The Wall.
