Thank you for coming by! I welcome you with a poem, inspired by one of my favorite words. Say “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 picture books, early readers, children’s nonfiction, poetry, and recently finished my first middle grade novel. You can read about how all this began at a very early age CoverPhotoand more on the About Karin page.

My board book My Amazing Day: A Celebration of Wonder and Gratitude  won the 2015 BAIPA Book Award for Fiction: Children’s Picture Book. It was also a runner-up in the 2013 ForeWord Book of the Year Award: Picture Book, Early Reader category.

As a children’s book editor, I draw from what I know about what makes stories engaging, how young people read, and how grammar and punctuation support clear writing. I 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 and reach your audience effectively 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.
