Manuscripts and Works-in-Progress


I am querying two Picture Book manuscripts at this time.  They are described below.

I also recently submitted my middle grade novel to Pitch Wars.  Winners will be announced in October!

The Christmas Code

THE  CHRISTMAS CODE is a 669-word fresh twist on Christmas stories for  contemporary kids age 6-8.  Disaster strikes on Christmas Eve when a boy  named Lyski hacks into Santa’s Naughty or Nice list. He’s trying to get  extra gifts despite being naughty all year. The head elf contacts a  girl named Tavi who must counter the hack with enough time for Santa to  make his deliveries. Lyski learns that the only way to get on the nice  list is by being kind and polite, following THE CHRISTMAS CODE.  

Broccoli is Trying to Kill Me

BROCCOLI  IS TRYING TO KILL ME is a 231-word picture book about very dangerous  vegetables. Despite dad’s insistence that broccoli is good for you, a  child is in the fight of their life against a mob of evil vegetables.  The vegetables pull a lot of punches when dad’s back is turned, but in  the end, eating all your vegetables is the safest way to survive.  


I have several other picture books that are still works in progress as well as an early draft of a chapter book.

I have spent the last few months editing my NaNoWriMo project AUNT CLAIRE'S PET CARE, which I submitted to Pitch Wars.
