Professional/Personal Overview
  Looking for someone to help you create a book or media project for young readers? I have almost twenty years experience in book publishing (with projects in both the trade and educational markets).

I've written numerous Curious George books, two picture books--A Little Bit of Love and Panda-monium (both published by Tiger Tales)--and have done everything from reviewing books to writing for an online parenting journal--and from writing leveled readers to writing fundraising campaigns for an educational nonprofit.
