Join my e-letter for playful productivity tips, whimsical parenting wisdom and missives from the space fairy kids




Hello + welcome! I’m glad you’re here.

I’m a writer and a playful productivity coach.

Right now I’m writing children’s books about outer space and magic. I also blog about creativity, productivity, writing, and the challenges of life as a busy parent.

As a coach, I support folks who are ready to jumpstart their creative projects and need help getting started or unstuck. I’ll also be unveiling my e-course, Tiny Pockets of Time, in the fall.
