Welcome

Perhaps I missed my calling as a milliner, with all the hats I wear: author of the award-winning mindfulness-themed picture book Charlotte and the Quiet Place, essayist, teacher, therapist, coach, editor, singer, and more. But I enjoy the variety and am glad you stopped by. Please take your time to explore these pages and contact me if you'd like to know more.

CHARLOTTE MAKES HER TV DEBUT

CHARLOTTE GOES 3D TO HELP HOSPITALIZED CHILDREN


Charlotte and the Quiet Place has been chosen to star in a Kickstarter campaign sponsored by SpellBound, a dynamic tech company that produces "augmented reality" apps for use with picture books, designed especially to help children cope with the stress and trauma of hospitalization.


The app transforms books into magical 3D experiences, allowing the reader to see characters leap from the page, hear narration and music, and interact with characters and their world. We can't wait to see the story come alive: Otto chasing the squirrel through the park! The subway screeching and rumbling! And the "hoo-ahh" breaths!


Please check out the big Kickstarter announcement and video and sign up for a chance to win a free year's subscription to Kiwi Crate, which ships fun and educational activities for kids of all ages.
