With an English degree from Stanford University and a Marketing and Finance MBA from the University of Chicago School of Business, she has marketed everything from Barbies to Disney toys, Kellogg’s cereal to LA Gear shoes. But when she started writing books for children, and then agenting them, she knew she’d found her true calling.

She was also a poetry anthologist.

Patrick Lewis. Each pair of poems in the anthology was inspired by someone whose actions made a difference, not only in their own lives, but in the lives of people all over the world. Subjects form a culturally diverse mix ranging from Jonas Salk to Steven Spielberg, from Christa McAuliffe to Michelle Kwan, with brief descriptions of their lives included. The collection,also garnered the California Reading Association’s 2012 Eureka! Silver Honor award and was named a Best Books of 2013 by Bank Street College of Education.
