temp 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 the wonderful Jackson Street School in Northampton, MA, where I also live.

Some More School

To get better at writing, I went to Hamline University for an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults.

More About Pigeons

They do live next door to me. And now a chicken has moved in with them. (I’ve got cool neighbors.)

Connecting to Kids

Receiving letters, emails, and doing school or Skype visits are very important to me. For more information about any of this, please go to my CONTACT page or VISITS page.
