I write mystery and suspense--cozy to edgy. I enjoy having a well-developed plot with lots of surprises. Reviewers often point out that I reach inside the mind of the killer, ferreting out their most basic needs and emotions. Of course, it's the reader's mind which really holds my interest.
I write children's books. As a child I was an incessant reader. As a teacher and mother, I witnessed the joy children experience reading stories for themselves, especially those incorporating rhythm and rhyme. In the process of creating a new book, I envision the pleasure the child will receive when hearing or reading the story.
