Hi. I'm Andrea. 

I'm so glad you stopped by.

Not only do I love reading children's books, I also write them. I've written 20 books for children learning English as well as a beginning reader for Scholastic Canada's The Literacy Place. I find many story ideas while thinking up fun activities for my kindergarten students!

When I'm not writing or teaching, I keep busy by inventing new muffin recipes, bird-watching, taking pictures of nature, and winning family Scrabble games. I also love creating art and playing board games (often at the same time).  

I'm a member of SCBWI and the 12 x 12 Picture Book Challenge. Inquiries about my writing may be directed to my agent, Janine Le.

I love to chat about writing or great children's books. Places where you can find my book reviews:

If you'd like your traditionally published, print book considered for review, please send me an email. I donate physical review copies to local schools or libraries.

A few random facts about me:

Now I live near Toronto, but I grew up in Thunder Bay, Ontario, where I spent hours climbing trees and hiking in the woods.

One of the things on my personal "bucket list" was to visit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and I did it!! (Now I want to go back.) I've also been to Kauii.

Before I became a kindergarten teacher, I was a freelance editor, a curriculum writer and a children's reading researcher.

My favourite snack is salt & vinegar chips.

This is my dog! His name is not Lassie.
