I leapt into children's literature with Downward Mule, followed by two more picture books expected by the end of 2023. I have also published poetry as well as magazine and newspaper articles.


Before becoming an author, I led family yoga classes on weekends with a weekday desk job as an editor-in-chief. Writing about a girl with special needs who walks because of yoga motivated my kids yoga certification and the publication of the first book to bridge yoga and a story. When not writing, volunteering, or parenting, I teach children yoga and mindfulness, and serve as a special needs aide at an elementary school. I hold a master’s degree in journalism and a bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in French, and have guest taught creative writing including at a juvenile detention center. What do you like to do? How does that shape your heart and stories? 

The cows are unhappy.    
The heat spoils their milk.
It makes the sheep too tired to give fleece.
The goats feel weak in the knees.
The hens can’t lay an egg. Clonk.  

What’s a mule to do?  ​
