I'm an award-winning children's book author who has written for American Girl, Disney, Lonely Planet Kids, Scholastic, National Geographic Kids, and more. I've also ghostwritten books for some amazing young YouTube stars. I cherish my time spent as an editor at American Girl where I developed crafts, recipes, and party ideas for girls. Beyond writing, I love to travel around the world. My most memorable trips include India, Cambodia, and Japan. I currently live in Los Angeles with my husband and daughter.
