My children are my inspiration, which I suppose could make for pretty boring stories
if they happened to be well behaved little darlings, but, fortunately for you, they are bonafide stinkers. 
They come from a very long line of stinkers. Their father was a stinker as was their grandfather before him. 
In fact, I'll bet you could trace our entire lineage of wise-cracking, spit-balling mooners all the way back to the very first cave kid who thought it would be a good idea to yank someone’s animal skins up for a laugh...
That prehistoric stinker was most likely related to us. 


I am an author and illustrator. I am also a mom.

People always say to "write what you know," so I guess it's no coincidence that my books are about 
boogers, bad manners and a boy named Bug who just can't seem to keep himself out of trouble. 

It is also no coincidence that my favorite sound is laughter, (a good old fashioned belly laugh, not an annoying high pitched giggle) and that I look for the humor in most any situation, especially difficult
which there is definitely no shortage of when you're the mother of a stinker or two. 
So, if you like
a good belly laugh or just happen to be a stinker yourself, check out my books!
