Photographer: Gaylene Erwin

I am a children’s author, a songwriter, and a mom to four boys. Doubleday Books for Young Readers will release my first board books, 10 Little Tractors and 10 Little Excavators, in Spring 2022. Abrams Appleseed will release my debut picture book, Mud!, in Spring 2022. I have also released a children’s album titled There is Joy. I served on the 2015 and 2016 Best in Rhyme Award committee, and I currently enjoy serving as the Regional Advisor for the SCBWI Utah/Southern Idaho region. I live in rural Idaho in a renovated farmhouse complete with my very own train car. (Which, of course, has time traveling capabilities.)
