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

I love drawing from what I know about what makes stories engaging, how young people read, and grammar/punctuation 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 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.

Find out where I’m giving author events and poetry readings on my Events page.

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

Happy news! 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.
