Thank you for coming by! I welcome you with a poem, inspired by one of my favorite words. Just try saying “petunia” aloud, and enjoy! What are your favorite words?

tune in to color
and put petunias into the ground
bright as sound
the tune of petunias

I write children’s poetry, picture books, early readers, and children’s nonfiction. You can read about how all this began at a very early age and more on the About Karin page.

Happy news! My board book My Amazing Day: A Celebration of Wonder and Gratitude recently won the 2015 BAIPA Book Award for Fiction: Children’s Picture Book.

I am delighted to have two poems in this year’s Poetry and Art show at the Wickford Art Association in Wickford, Rhode Island, which runs from July 22- August 14, 2016. This is a show of poems inspired by art, all displayed together in a gallery by the water, and the theme this year is “Wonder.” That is a pretty dreamy combination to me.

I love taking everything from my understanding of what makes a story work to my knowledge of grammar details to edit children’s books and young adult books of all genres. You can learn about the ways I can help you make your manuscript even more of what you want it to be on my Editing Services page.

My musings on being a grown-up person who still has her sense of wonder are in
my Still in Awe Blog.

I love hearing from readers and writers! Here’s where you can contact me.
