I've been writing and illustrating children's books for more than 30 years and have published over 50 books. I graduated from Massachusetts College of Art in 1980 with a BFA in illustration. My Italian childhood has inspired several books. The first book I wrote and illustrated was "Wednesday is Spaghetti Day". My books "Bus Route to Boston" and "Clams All Year" are family stories which I hold dear to my heart. Recent books include JANINE which was inspired by my daughter, www.Janinesparty.com, THEO'S MOOD and A VACATION FOR POOCH. My most popular series are the "LET IT" Books; LET IT RAIN & LET IT SHINE, LET IT FALL & LET IT SNOW. My books, "Princess K.I.M and the Lie that Grew" and "Princess Kim and Too Much Truth", which together inspired my new Play, 'Princess K.I.M The Musical'. Please keep checking my website and blog to learn more about my books, school visits and upcoming projects. I live and work in NH where I am working on new books, as well as preparing for several upcoming productions of 'Princess K.I.M. The Musical'.
(I look forward to hearing from you.)
