My Books

One of the greatest needs of the human spirit is to feel seen, heard and understood.This 'paying attention' to one another is what allows us to truly be connected. Think of each of my books as a little bridge of love and encouragement from your heart to the ones who matter most to you.

My books are published by Sourcebooks, Inc., the largest woman-owned publisher in North America. Please  note — my titles often exist in multiple formats: Hardcover (32 pages) and Board Books (24 cardboard pages).
