I have been writing picture books and easy-to-read chapter books for more than twenty-five years.
My most recent books are: Tummy Time Friends; Common Critters; and Before We Eat: from farm to table (Second Edition 2018), with gorgeous illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Mary Azarian.
I am a former elementary school teacher, school librarian and reference librarian in a public library. I am available to do author visits to schools.
For the last few years, I have also been writing poetry for adults and do poetry readings for interested groups and organizations.
My husband and I have four grown sons. We live in Phillipsburg, NJ. Our last name has a short "i" sound and rhymes with "listen".
