I am the author of several children’s books, including JACK WINS AN ELEPHANT (Epicenter, 2019). During my 20-year career, I’ve held several editorial positions including managing editor of Guideposts for Kids magazine and Guideposts for Kids website, media blogger for the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, project manager of Doorposts – a biannual publication for educators – and staff features writer for The Times Newspaper of Northwest Indiana. My work has garnered multiple awards from respected organizations such as the Educational Publishers Association, Parents Guide, and the American Library Association.
A graduate of Indiana University and Chicago-Kent School of Law, I’m also a mom of four fantastic kids (seven if you include two slobbery dogs and a horse) . During the past decade, I’ve spent my spare time cheering my children from the sidelines of the football and soccer fields, the track, the wrestling mat, and the pool deck! While I can run a decent 5K and am contemplating a second marathon, I’m just as happy curled up with a good book, my two bullmastiffs, and a steaming mug of coffee.
