I was born in Buffalo, New York and moved to Seoul, South Korea after graduating from Alfred University.  In Seoul I taught  young children English for many years and now study Second Language Aquisition at Stellenbosch University and participate in the local art exhibitions through art community IAC http://koreaiac.com/index2.html.  In my spare time I write and illustrate.  My second children’s book No Insects for Olive will be coming soon!

The Terrible Tune That Came to the Zoo is the story is about a young girl, her ear-torturing song, and a rambunctious adventure around the zoo to find a new friend. The animals however, are not so amused by her singing. The rhythm of the narrative flows to create the emotions both the girl and the animals are feeling in their off-beat encounters. No matter how the girl’s voice terrorizes the animals out of their stripes, spots of mane, the girl is never deterred from her goal. In the end she makes a friend that appreciates her tone-deaf song and together they walk home, singing as they go.
