I love reading children's books, especially wild, rebellious adventures and silly stories. I am currently writing my own.  

In 2017, I founded the Bellport Children's Festival, a whimsical, immersive children's storytelling festival set on Isabella Rossellini's newly named MAMA Farm on Long Island.

About Me:

I grew up on the edge of Sherwood Forest and yes, my father really was the High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire, England. I am probably Robin Hood's cousin. I mean, I did spend every summer shooting arrows at my siblings, building forts in the rhododendrums, and organizing tree climbing competitions. I also rode a pony everywhere and rescued a gazillion innocent insects from evil predators. 

Today I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, three rambunctious children and our wild wolf, Sugar.
