I am a leadership consultant and author of books about youth leadership as well as middle grade and young adult fiction.


Youth Leadership

Anyone can be a leader—and it’s never too early to start learning what leadership means and how to lead! Programs and schools around the world are using the Everyday Leadership curriculum to build leadership skills and instill a leadership attitude in young people.

I offer customized consulting and training services for students, teachers, parents, and community leaders seeking to enhance their own leadership skills or wanting to start their own leadership program.

Books for Kids and Teens

I also write middle grade and young adult fiction and currently have two upcoming novels:

Daring Ivy is about the friendship between a boy and a girl, and what happens when they try to make the most of their summer before junior high begins.

Hurricane Season tells the tale of two teens whose friendship exposes the racial tensions of Arlo, Texas in 1963. As the explosive summer unfolds, their friendshp will either bring the small town closer together . . . or tear it apart.

I also lead writers workshops for young readers and writers.
