A Few Facts


It’s a fact; I like facts

  • Pigeons have been carrying messages for humans since 500 B.C.E.!
  • Tents, dating back to 40,000 B.C.E., made from Wooly Mammoth hides were found in Russia! Cool, eh?
  • It’s also a fact I like fiction, which is why The Teddy Mars Series blends facts and fiction.


  • I taught kindergarten and third grade at Jackson Street School in Northampton, MA, where I also live!
  • To get better at writing, I went to Hamline University for an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
