I've headlined American Girl retail store events around the country, events at beloved bookshops like Children's Book World in Los Angeles, local book festivals, and elementary school literacy nights. I love to share writing tips with kids, fun facts about how books are made, and my latest project, The Look Up Series, which features real women in STEM careers. I'm very proficient at hosting crafts and activities during these events as well!

Podcasts + Interviews
With 15 years of experience in children's publishing, I'm happy to share advice about the business side of publishing that can help empower aspiring authors. I'm also an advocate for working parents and passionate about raising strong girls. I love to talk about how and why we need to expose young children to more careers.

With more than 50 books on the shelf and 15+ years of experience in the children's publishing industry, you can imagine that I have a lot to say! I absolutely love presenting at writing conferences and publishing events for grown-ups about how to *actually* get a children's book published. My focus is on the business side of children's book publishing and what aspiring authors need to know to avoid a "no." I can speak as both a traditionally published author and as owner of an indie publishing company.
