I am a graduate of Hamline University's MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults, and a writing teacher at the Loft Literary Center in the Twin Cities. A Minnesota native, I now live in South Minneapolis with my family. I love cooking, reading, and hiking in all kinds of weather.My first picture book, Loon Baby, just came out with Houghton Mifflin (2011), and my first Young Adult novel, Silhouette of a Sparrow, is due out with Milkweed Editions in the fall of 2012. I am working on more picture books, and a middle grade novel.Though my writing reaches across all age groups and genres, it all demonstrates my passion for exploring young people's changing relationship to the natural world.
