Website


I have been writing picture books and easy-to-read chapter books for the last twenty years. My first YA, The Best and Hardest Thing, a novel in verse, will be coming out in May 2010.

I am a former elementary school teacher, school librarian and reference librarian in a public library. I now write full-time and do author visits to schools.

My husband and I have four grown sons. We live in Phillipsburg, New Jersey.
Our last name has a short "i" sound and rhymes with "listen".

Totally adorable-he fell asleep right on top of me!
What was he like afterwards?
I thought he'd died. No, Really! He fell asleep-I had to roll him off of me so i could breathe”
