I work in a school library and write books and poems.
My debut picture book, Pie Is for Sharing, illustrated by Jason Chin and published by Roaring Brook Press, comes out May 15, 2018. My next book, Home Is a Window, illustrated by Chris Sasaki, comes out in 2019 from Neal Porter/Holiday House.
I grew up in Wichita Falls, Texas and now live in Dallas with my husband, Aaron, two funny daughters, a huge dog named Scout Pudding, and a couple of cats. I have an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts and a journalism degree from The University of Texas at Austin.
I love reading books, playing the piano, napping, being under trees, and doing just about anything with my family.
