In addition to her own publications, she runs At Home Author, a coaching and consulting company that teaches current and aspiring authors how to get their books published and marketed for success.

Picture Book Wishlist:
Stories by underrepresented authors, both fiction and non-fiction. I especially love bilingual books.
Books that are educational (fiction or nonfiction) in a way that makes learning fun, especially if they are musical in some way.
Lighthearted, playful humor with heart.
Familiar storylines with a fresh twist or perspective
Rhyming stories must be exceptionally well written with perfect meter.
She also loves Young Adult and Fantasy. She is not the best fit for potty humor, graphics
novels, or nonfiction adult books.
