My Books

PLAYING LIKE A GIRL, a non-fiction picture book about courageous female athletes from 1827 to present day and the eventual passing of Title IX, will be published by Charlesbridge Publishing in the Fall of 2018.

Below are the early-reader books, I've proudly written in collaboration with Giltedge Publishing located in Petone, New Zealand.

Giltedge readers possess essential literary elements: age-appropriate compelling stories, dynamic changes in protagonist's character, situations and setting that are emotionally identifiable to the novice reader, as well as surprising plot twists. Their teaching guides are academically sound, lively, and creative illustrating how to best instruct the skills of phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. Techniques such as acting out plays or participating in Reader's Theater are employed, assuring that the process of learning how to read is an entertaining one. Giltedge readers are simply marvelous!
