Children's & Young Adult Author/Illustrator - Artist - Indigenous Language Advocate
“The most important thing to me is to teach the children, so that our culture never dies.”
— Blackhawk SanCarlos (Mohawk & Apache)
I believe in magic. I believe in the magic that happens when we open our minds to the infinitesimal possibilities of words brought to life. This is the foundation of the colorful characters, fantastic realms, and raw emotions that make us laugh, cry and want to shout at the top of our lungs. In this we are all related.
So grab a cup of your favorite beverage, your coziest blanket, and step inside a brand new adventure. Who will you become today?
