I created Acorn Cottage Press in 2022 with my first picture book project Why Me, Mama? which raised over 23K on Kickstarter. In August 2023, I launched OUCH! OOPS! OH NO!, a set of three books sharing a single story with three unique perspectives to foster Social Emotional Learning and reduce bullying, raising another 10k+. My mission is to provide authentic and empowering disability representation.

I live on Cape Cod with my husband Arden and our girls Rose and Magnolia. When not writing, you can find us swimming, boating, renovating a historic firehouse in VT, and eating potluck dinners with friends.
