Thanks for stopping by!

My newest historical novel, the second in the G.I. Dogs series, will be published on September 11, 2018. It’s about a real dog named Stubby who joined a U.S. infantry division and played a part in World War I. This hero dog made a huge difference in the lives of the men in her unit and even captured a German spy!

I love visiting schools in person to talk about writing, weird-and-wacky facts, and bringing history to life.
