I’m the author of award-winning nonfiction picture and chapter books as well as 22+ books of fiction (picture books, books of poetry, chapter books, novels, and folktales). Titles include the Jo MacDonald nature series, Mighty Mole and Super Soil, Pirate vs. Pirate, Winter Friends, and the popular Jackson Jones chapter book series. I also publish frequently in children’s magazines (Cricket, Ladybug, Babybug, Spider, Highlights), write often for the KidsPost section of the Washington Post, and review children’s books regularly for the Washington Post and Washington Parent. I teach at the Vermont College of Fine Arts, in the MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults, and love presenting at schools and conferences. Publishers include Random House, Farrar, Strauss and Giroux, Disney, Dawn, and National Geographic (forthcoming) and nonfiction entries for Gale.
