I've had the joy of writing and editing more than 50 books for children and young adults—a dream come true for me. Now, I work passionately to help other writers fulfill their dreams. As the Senior Editor for Dalmatian Press/Piggy Toes Press/Intervisual Books, I collaborated with writers, editorial directors and illustrators to produce Sesame Workshop books and Disney books, as well as original titles. I specialize in children's literature—from first draft to publication.
I edit, help to develop, and proofread "kidlit" manuscripts for writers. I also assist with proposals, query letters, and synopses, and provide public relations services after publication.
Wrote and edited children's books—including picture books, footnoted classics and board books—for Sesame Street, Disney, publishers of Strawberry Shortcake and Curious George coloring & activity books, and other companies. Researched, wrote and edited original titles for adults, such as the Martin Luther King, Jr., book, "Voices: Reflections on an American Icon in Words and Song." Helped launch Spirit Press and Sonrisas imprints. Had the CEO of Sesame Workshop name rhyming book "What Makes You Giggle?" as the standard for what a Sesame Street book should be.
