It’s still relatively early in my writing career, but for now, these are my answers to some of my most asked questions.

I started creating picture books shortly after my first child, Aliya, was born as a way to entertain her while we bonded. Then my son, Tristan, was born. Then my other son, Joshua. Then Cam and Nora came into the picture and before I knew it, I was chugging along and had ten, fun-filled picture books!

I’ve known I wanted to be a writer since I was 21 years old, but I’ve wanted to tell stories (in some form or another) for the majority of my life. It’s a passion that’s never dwindled.

My aim isn’t to be a prestigious literary writer (QUALITY over quantity), nor is it to be known for entertaining but poorly written novels (QUANTITY over quality). My hope is that I’ll strike a balance and develop a readership that enjoys my style and constant exploration of the writing craft. 

I admit, I find social media to be a creative drain, so I’m not a huge fan. Still, it’s a necessary evil, so I do partake. Ugh. 😉

Whether you’re a school, library, or group of people gathering in someone’s apartment, I always enjoy doing author visits and readings.

I never wanted a massive cavern filled with gold and riches attained from my picture book sales. It’s true. While I do have a large family to feed, my picture books were always my way of spreading a love of reading to as many children as I can.

For that reason, I’ll gladly donate 80-100% of book profits from my fundraisers. If you’re interested in partnering up with me, please email me at 

NOTE: I currently only utilize my picture books in fundraisers.
