First School Visit!

SchoolVisitI got invited to do my first school visit! Like Lexi, I have a “phobia of eyeballs staring at me.” Should be interesting! 😉

In all seriousness, though, I really enjoy talking to kids about Lexi. Invariably, we end up talking about following dreams and identifying superpowers within ourselves. It all ends up being very inspiring and I simply LOVE to see kids light up when they map out their plans to make their own dreams come true.


Super Lexi is Now Available!


I am so happy to announce that my chapter book, Super Lexi is now available! Click here to buy it now!

I am so grateful to everyone who  has supported me along the way. I particularly appreciate those of you that have read my blog or followed me on Facebook/Twitter as Lexi has grown from an idea to a full-fledged character.

A special thanks to Adam Winsor, whose beautiful illustrations capture Lexi and her spirit better than I could have ever hoped for.  And thank you to Keith Snyder for presenting Lexi’s story exactly as I had envisioned it!



Super Lexi Comes Out Tomorrow!


I’m getting so excited for the big day. My chapter book Super Lexi will be released tomorrow!!!

About the Book

Lexi’s got phobias about lots of things. Yogurt. Songs that get stuck in her head. Cashiers who think they’re good with kids. Her biggest phobia on Planet Earth, though, is eyeballs staring at her. That’s how come it’s too bad she has a solo in the school Parents’ Day performance. Good thing she has a plan. If she tornado-twirls at blur speed, she can disappear onstage!


Congratulations to Corinne and Carley!


Congratulations to winners of the Super Lexi Superpower Contest, Corinne, age 9, and Carley, age 8!

Corinne’s superpower is making homemade gifts like friendship pins, duct tape wallets and friendship bracelets. Carley’s superpower is being kind to others. Both superpowers help make the world a better place!
