I have been writing poems for some time now; a talent I proudly inherited by my grandfather.
For 18 years I worked with elementary students and children with learning disabilities, primarily autism. Working with young children has set my poetry in a different direction. With the urging from colleagues and students alike I've been bringing my words to life.

I self-published two books The Healthy Alaphabet and The Duck With Luck. The Healthy Alphabet was illustrated by one of my students which made it even more special. The Duck with Luck is a true story about a duck who befriened my family and friends on a small island in Hawaii.

I now have a publisher Petite Scribe who I am very honored and excited to work with. My 5th book with Petite Scribe is in the process of coming to life.

My husband and I have recently retired and moved from Hawaii to a small seaside community in Oregon to be closer to our 2 children and 6 grandkids.

I truly hope you and your children enjoy my books. They are all available on
