What were you like at the age of your target audience?
I loved reading, finding insects, being my older sister’s sidekick, and spending time with my Grandma.. I never watched TV and my favorite place to visit was the library.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by so many things but the top five are: nature, children, dogs, travel, and great writing.
What’s one thing you hope your readers take away from your books?
With ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON, I’m so happy children have been inspired to be curious, creative, and even messy. That’s what science and experimentation is all about. I have had countless parents and teachers tell me, they appreciate that ALIANA gives them permission to allow their children to explore.
What can we look forward to next?
I have several picture books that I’ve been querying and am trying to draft a middle grade novel. I have an outline and some of a beat sheet written but I need to start writing! I am enjoying working with other authors and illustrators via my blog to help them promote their work. There’s so much talent in the kid lit community and I’m grateful for the connections and friendships I’ve made.
