About the Author

I am an award-winning children’s book author from Northern California. I have always had a passion for reading and writing and channeled that love into publishing my first book, Cowgirl Lessons, in 2017. Since then I have gone on to publish an additional seven books, with another horse book in development.

I have channeled my nearly 25-year career in marketing and graphic design into my publishing business. I also enjoy helping others reach their publishing goals especially those who write horse-themed books.

In 2022, I founded the Horse Books Summer Reading Program, a free virtual summer reading program for kids supported by international horsebook authors. Information about the program can be found at www.wereadhorsebooks.com.

I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Northern California Publishers and Authors. I recently was appointed to the Sacramento Scottish Rite Clinic Board of Governors. The Board supports the work of RiteCare Childhood Language Center of Sacramento which provides diagnostic and treatment services for children with delays in the acquisition of speech and language skills.

I live with a loving, supportive husband; a dog who has her own business cards; and a neurotic cat who eats plastic houseplants. Our daughter is now off to college in the Wild West of Texas!
