A Bit of Humor

I’m so happy you’ve come to visit and discover more about me and my writing. I’m lucky enough to write books for children and teens. In 2007, Chelsea Clubhouse published my Dog Tales series of five books about the amazing lives of working dogs. The titles in the series are: Distinguished Dogs, Helping Dogs, Hunting and Herding Dogs, Police Dogs and Search and Rescue Dogs. My book, Managing Responsibilities (Chelsea House, 2009), was part of the Character Education series.

Rachel Carson (Chelsea House, 2011) is a biography of the famed marine biologist and award-winning author. Carson's book, Silent Spring, sounded the alarm about the danger pesticide use posed to wildlife and to people.  She is credited with sparking the modern environmental movement. I am excited to say that Rachel Carson was included in the short list for the 2012 Newton Marasco Foundation's Green Earth Book Award.

My newest book, Racing and Lure Coursing Dogs, was recently published by ABDO in January 2019. It features sighthound athletes and their phenomenal strength, speed, and agility.
