My home's in Salt Lake City, where the sun seems to shine at least a little most days, and the mountain trails are a 10-minute drive. 

I love to get outside - hiking, biking, backpacking, skiing, or just a walk in the rain. These are my hiking companions, Milo and Nishka.

In addition to being a writer, I'm a children's librarian.

Storytimes allow me to experiment

with picture books - what works,

and why?
