I am a storyteller. You may encounter my stories when I use them to tell about lightning and meteorites while teaching glass classes in Portland, Oregon. Or when I blog pictures and my theories and opinions regarding lichen on Tumblr.
The stories I write for children begin with an idea or experience someone shares with me. That spark may be a pie contest, a shipwreck or a kid sticking his finger in a pig's nose.
Following a Bachelors' degree in political science, I worked in the legal field until I had kids. While they were young, I learned to fuse glass with my sister-in-law. Tiny kids and glass: what a great combination. As they grew I began sharing glass with their classrooms, then other classrooms until it filled my life. Now that my nest often has empty space, I fill it with stories I hope will entertain, inform and amuse young readers.
