I am a children's book author and editor who has worked in the children's book field for over twenty years. My books include picture book Sled Dog Dachshund (illustrated by An Phan), and the middle grade biography Fred Korematsu Speaks Up (co-written with Stan Yogi, illustrated by Yutaka Houlette). This is the first in the Fighting for Justice series. The second book, Biddy Mason Speaks Up, is out in February 2019. I spent seven years in editorial departments in the United States where I helped to produce winners of the Coretta Scott King Award and American Library Association Notable Book selections, among others. I continued to work as a freelance editor and as a Senior Lecturer at the National Centre for Research in Children's Literature (NCRCL) at Roehampton University in London. Now based in Berkeley, California, I work with clients all over the world. I have an MA in Children's Literature from Roehampton University, and an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
