I've written a nonfiction middle grade book, Bionic Beasts: Saving Animal Lives with Artificial Flippers, Legs, and Beaks, published by Lerner/Millbrook Press. My editor and I worked very hard to tell the stories of animals who have been helped by technology and the people who helped them. I'm so excited to share their stories with you! Order your copy to learn more.

My picture book Mac and Cheese and the Personal Space Invader, illustrated by Heather Bell, was published by Clear Fork/Spork. In Mac and Cheese and the Personal Space Invader, Oliver hopes he can learn to be a good friend by observing how guinea pig friends Mac and Cheese interact. Snuggling might be OK for guinea pigs, but Oliver’s classmates don’t like him getting in their personal space bubbles. Will Oliver ever stop being a personal space invader? Order your copy and find out!
