In my picture book manuscripts I like to draw from my niche experiences, calling on Dungeons and Dragons adventures, starting as a competitive figure skater at three years old, living in five states/two countries, and working with kids as young as five in Shakespeare workshops, to create unique characters with relatable goals, fears, and frustrations. As kids encounter new experiences, triumphs, and set backs, I want to bring a hopeful and helpful perspective.
I am an active member of the SCBWI.
I am currently querying agents for representation.
BLOG: Shax & Champs
