I’m now living my third “life” as a children’s author and amateur musician. The love of the French language inspired my first life as a high school French teacher, followed by a 25-year+ career as a college librarian. I live in Daly City, (next to San Francisco, CA), with my husband Martin and mini-schnauzer dog, Archie.
I love picture books and read them a lot. Here are some of my current favs:
- “Here Comes the Tooth Fairy Cat” by Deborah Underwood.
- “They All Saw a Cat” by Brendan Wenzel
- “Pigeon Needs a Bath” by Mo Willems
- “Z is for Moose” by Kelley Bingham
When I’m not reading or writing picture books, I’m playing cello or piano.
My fantasy would be to be a famous tango dancer or jazz singer.
As a kid I read to escape. One summer I set my goal to read every book in the children’s section of my public library branch. I almost did it!
I like being around kids and getting them excited about reading. During a normal school year, I tutor 2nd or 3rd-graders at the Bayshore Elementary School.
