Welcome! I am the author of the middle grade fiction books, BILLY'S FIRST DANCE and FUNNY PAGES. My new novel, set in the American west, is coming soon.
BILLY'S FIRST DANCE
Thirteen-year-old Junie dreams of becoming a writer. Her youngest brother, Billy, afflicted with Spina Bifida and confined to a wheelchair, dreams of dancing. Their quirky but loving family finds a way to stay together. Set in the southeast in the 1970s, BILLY'S FIRST DANCE unfolds with attention to family bonds, special needs and coming of age.
Sally's grandfather is a retired cartoonist. He creates Marchmont just for her. FUNNY PAGES highlights Sally's family life and the fictional characters of the village, Marchmont.
