I am a leadership consultant and author of books about youth leadership as well as juvenile fiction and nonfiction.


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, K12 teachers, youth workers, universities, camps, 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 literary middle grade and young adult fiction:

The Summer Between is the story of best friends, Cotton and Ivy,  and the dreams and dares they share in the summer leading up to junior high.

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 friendship will either bring the small town closer together . . . or tear it apart.

I also lead writers workshops for young readers and writers.
