About

We all know we do our best work when we’re involved in a project we believe in and are excited about bringing to life. Because I want to do my best work, I strive to team with authors whose projects I truly believe in.

I believe that

• Stories are powerful

• Young people should have access to many stories that celebrate differences and diversity  and feature characters like themselves

• Literature helps us understand people we see as different from ourselves

• Books can be entertaining without being violent

• The more positive stories we create in the world, the better off the world will be

Imagine if we had more stories about people who

• Have disabilities and who are also capable

• Speak up when they see an injustice

• Care about the planet

• Solve problems peacefully

• Are racially diverse

• Treat all genders with respect

• Listen to others with an open mind

Imagine what incredible examples these stories would be, what comfort they could provide for their readers. As a writer, you have the privilege of helping shape people’s perspectives.

Are you a writer who shares my wish for a joyful, inclusive, respectful world?  Let’s work together!
