Hi! I'm Heidi!

I do the deep thinking that's needed to transform ideas into children's books. I make picture bookschapter books, and nonfiction for kids with curious minds and kind hearts.

I believe books have the power to make us all feel a little less alone, and the best ones leave room for the reader's imagination. Whether it's a poetic picture book, a zippy early reader, or a kid-friendly take on the physics of time travel, my books are philosophical and filled with quirky tidbits, playful language, and lots of heart. 

It's been my pleasure to work on more than 300 titles for clients ranging from Target to Barnes & Noble. My credits include 180 nonfiction books in partnership with Time for Kids, 90 picture books, chapter books, and middle-grade novels, plus a wide variety of activity books, and art and craft books. After working in publishing for nearly 15 years, I'm so excited to see my own picture books and chapter books making their way into the world.
