Thank you for stopping by! Back in November 2022, I was thrilled to announce my first book and first collaboration with my husband, John Rocco, entitledHow to Send a Hug (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers) to multiple starred reviews. Since then, we've been working on lots more.
We will be launching several books about topics near and dear to our hearts in both fiction and nonfiction in 2024 including: Wild Places: The Life of Naturalist David Attenborough(2.27.24); the first three books in our new Meet the Wild Things series for young readers; Hello, I'm a Sloth, Hello, I'm a Pangolin and Hello, I'm a Quokka (All nonfiction publishing with G.P. Putnam). And our second fiction picture book with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers entitled All the Books about a book hoarding chipmunk who discovers the magic that of a library card. I cannot wait to share them all with you. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Hello, I'm an Axolotl in 2025. And more to come, soon.
Coming February 27, 2024: WILD PLACES: The Life of Naturalist David Attenborough

Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection
“For fledgling conservationists and climate activists . . . An inspiring overview of a life dedicated to essential eco-causes.”--Kirkus Reviews
“Naturalistic illustrations illuminate scenes of Attenborough’s youth and young adulthood with period detail . . . An exemplar of a public figure who changed course to address climate change.”--Publishers Weekly
“Told in short elementary-school-friendly sentences with some science vocabulary, the text offers an overarching look at Attenborough’s life so far . . . Crisp, neat prose and lush artwork augment the simplicity well.”--Booklist
