Washington, DC
Hi! I am a children’s book author based in Washington, D.C. where I live with my husband, son, and pesky cat. My first picture book, THIS IS NOT A NORMAL ANIMAL BOOK (illustrated by Brian Biggs) (Simon and Schuster), released in 2017. Before becoming a writer, I was the president and founder of Civic Action Strategies, a grassroots organizing and democracy development consulting firm. I worked in Kosovo, where I directed citizen engagement programs for U.S. and European organizations. I'm also a lawyer and former Congressional lobbyist for civil rights and civil liberties, and am fluent in Spanish. These days, I can usually be found advocating for my many favorite children’s books to anyone who will listen. I look forward to meeting you and to talking about why and how to use picture books to spark civic action!
