About Me

I recently unearthed the essay that I wrote (many years ago) for my college applications. It ended with the words, “Whether I become a biologist or scientist studying language acquisition, or an architect who designs schools, I know I will spend my life on work that has to do with children.”

My life and work has, in fact, been very much focussed on children: as a writer, teacher, professor, landscape architect, play advocate and, of course, as a mother.

Writing is the place where the strands that matter most come together for me: raising girls (and being one); believing in the power of exploration, play and making; and tuning in, always, to the ever-changing natural world. These musings on writing and reading children’s books come from one who loves to write, read, play, design, and mess around in the natural (and built) world.

Thanks for visiting.
