Overview

I am a best-selling children’s book author, editor and writing coach. With my mother, actress/author Julie Andrews, I have co-authored over twenty-five children’s books, seven of which have been on the NY Times Bestseller list, including The Very Fairy Princess series (#1 Bestseller), Julie Andrews Collection of Poems, Songs and Lullabies, the Dumpy the Dump Truck series, Simeon’s Gift, The Great American Mousical, and Thanks to You – Wisdom from Mother and Child. My own book, Raising Bookworms: Getting Kids Reading for Pleasure and Empowerment, premiered as a #1 best-seller on Amazon.com in the literacy category and won a Parent’s Choice Gold Medal. I am a faculty member of Stony Brook Southampton’s MFA in Creative Writing and Literature, where I serve as Director of the Children’s Literature Fellows program, and Executive Director of the Young Artists and Writers Project (YAWP), an inter-disciplinary writing program for middle and high school students. I also work as a freelance children’s book editor, and host the Just Write Children’s Books home-study courses in writing picture books, chapter books and middle grade and young adult novels. In addition, I provide voicing and narration for audiobooks, and am an accomplished public speaker, regularly addressing arts and literary conferences, schools, universities and other groups about the value of, and synergy between, the arts and literacy.
