Member Since
March 2011

While writing The Safest Lie, I conducted research in Warsaw, Poland. In addition to reviewing testimonies of Jewish children recorded at the end of the war, I was honored to interviewe Irena Sendler who was a member of the Polish resistance group Zegota and in charge of the child rescue operations from the Warsaw ghetto.

Currently a resident of Georgia, I was born in Michigan and earned two degrees at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. I love being part of the kidlit community, especially SCBWI (where I volunteer as the Assistant International Advisor) and Verla Kay's blue board.

The best thing about writing has been meeting readers. Please stop by my website
