About me

Secret of Success

At a young age, I found myself captivated by the power of words and the art of storytelling. I am incredibly fortunate that I can share these innate passions through my books today. My first book, 'How to Grow: Nurture Your Garden, Nurture Yourself,' has been an incredible journey of personal and professional growth. Published by the esteemed HarperOne, it hit the shelves in May of 2022. My picture book with Nancy Paulson Books/Penguin will come out early 2025, and I’m currently working on another special project. I look forward to sharing the books to come, and thank my readers for their support!
