Occupation: I’m a children’s book editor and writer. I worked in publishing at various companies in New York City for 25 years, and I’m currently a freelance editor and writer. I’ve done a lot of children’s book writing for Random House, Disney, Penguin, and others, in which I write about familiar licensed characters from movies and TV. But what I’m just as proud of and enjoyed equally was editing Newbury and Caldecott Award-winning writers such as Katherine Paterson, Avi, Linda Sue Park, and Brian Selznick.
