I'm crazy about books! I grew up reading books under the covers with a flashlight. I still read voraciously. Current projects include a student workbook to go with Cryptomania and an eBook for folks brand new to children's writing. Stay tuned.

I watch old-timey movies, have fun with my family, email pals around the country, do Sudokus, compost and recycle (call me the "Recycling Queen"), and work toward fairness and justice for all on this small blue marble we call home.
