My Books

It’s important to me to write about things of meaning and value. My latest picture book, LOVE SOFIA, is illustrated with real life photographs of Sofia and her amazing life. Most of those photographs are taken by professional photographers, who graciously gave us permission to use them for the book.

My other picture books: TWIN TO TWIN, MY PUP, MY KITTEN, SWEET BABY FEET, and STAR BABY are in all in rhyme with bright, gorgeous illustrations from different talented artists, chosen by the publishers. My picture books reflect everyday adventures of things important to children. I hope you check them out and that they can be part of your story book time with your family!

MALIBU WISH is my novel, out this 2017 Holiday Season. It’s an epic love-story spanning generations from the 80’s to present day. I’m self-publishing it, and while I know that will be challenging, I believe that is the journey this book is supposed to take. Please look for it on Amazon, where you can buy it in soft cover edition OR for your Kindle.

“Poof! Then magic happened, from light inside my heart.They loved me and I learned, I am capable, kind and smart!” How do we inspire our children to know all the ways they can shine in this world, simply by being who they are? BE YOU TIFUL LOVE, SOFIA is the true story of Sofia Sanchez, a little girl with Down syndrome. Talking to you heart to heart, Sofia takes you on her personal journey of dreaming big and never giving up.
