Welcome! Thanks for stopping by!


I couldn't be more excited about the publication of my newest novel, ROOSEVELT BANKS, GOOD-KID IN TRAINING. Roosevelt, more than anything else, wants a new bicycle so that he can go on a biking/camping trip with his friends. The only problem? He has to be good for two whole weeks before his parents will give him the prize he wants. Read more about it here.


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