Thanks for stopping by! I am a writer of children’s articles and books. I absolutely love seeing children get lost in reading.  I write eco-adventure fiction stories and non fiction that take children into the depths of the outdoors and on journeys into amazing worlds and activities.


FACES Magazine The Dominica Republic Issue April 2016Just in time for the opening of the baseball season, catch my three articles in the April 2016 issue of FACES magazine on The Dominican Republic. The Dominicans are baseball fanatics and MLB has more Dominican players than from any other country than the U.S.! How does this tiny country do that? Learn more in my articles, Baseball is a Way of Life, Dominican Republic’s Top Baseball Stars, and Baseball Next Stars: Dominican Youth Academies.


March 2016 FACES magazineI have two articles in the beautiful March 2016 issue of FACES magazine, KENYA – A DIVERSE LAND. This issue takes a look at the beauty, history, runners and changing landscape of Kenya.  I’m an avid runner and learned about the food the runners eat and the changing role of women in Kenya. That spawned my queries and two articles were accepted: The Changing Role of Women, A Kaleidoscope of Food and Drink (with Ugali and Irio Recipes).
