Welcome to my web site!
Whether you are looking for information
for a book report, an author visit, ways to
incorporate my books into the classroom,
or just a little fun, you’ve come to the
right place. If you don’t find what you are
looking for, please contact me.
Of course, I’d love to hear from my readers anytime!
I'm thrilled to share that THE HOUSE ON DIRTY-THIRD STREET has been honored with two wonderful awards -- a 2013 Christopher Award and the first ever Social Justice Literature Award from the International Reading Association. The Christopher Awards celebrate media that "affirms the highest values of the human spirit."
I'm pleased to have three new books out!
THE HOUSE ON DIRTY-THIRD STREET,
A BREATH OF HOPE, and HELPING A HERO
Bobbie Aultman, of Q the Video, helped me create the book trailer below for ROSA's BUS, which I hope librarians and teachers will incorporate with students, prior to sharing the book.
