I’ve always told people that “What makes me a write is that I write.” It’s a skill shaped by much practice. My writing career started in third grade with a short story about aliens landing in my backyard. Today my writing portfolio includes community reporting, social commentary, children’s picture books, and blogging. I’ve included a collection of my writings below.

Clean Water for Elirose, published in September 2010.

This is a children’s picture book on the topic of clean drinking water. It is a great way to present a concrete example of the impacts of global poverty to young children and create discussion on what we can do to help.

The book is available to order online (and Amazon).
