I am seeking representation as a children’s author.  I have written three picture books for children ages 4 to 8 years old.  My work features characters that are underrepresented in children’s literature and stories that have gone untold.  I am a graduate of the Children’s Book Academy and the recipient of a Yuyi Morales Diversity Merit Scholarship.  For pitches and queries, please contact me.
