I always wanted to be an author—mostly because I wanted to see my name on the covers of books. (I LOVED reading books.) Luckily, I grew up to love writing. And drawing. And even more luckily, that’s what I get to do for “work.”
I started keeping a journal when I was eight, inspired by one of my favorite books Harriet the Spy. I published my first book All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat when I was 28. I have written and illustrated six other books for kids and two books for grown ups.
These are my three dogs: Betty, Toby, and Charley. I also have a teenager. We live in an old farmhouse in central Massachusetts.

I rode my bike across the United States, like 4,500 miles from Oregon to Virginia
I can make a four leaf clover with my tongue
I worked in the White House, the one in Washington, DC
My favorite meal is dessert. (Fruit is not a dessert.)
I am allergic to shellfish and mean people.
