I'm the author of several novels for 'tweens and teens, including the SIREN trilogy, MERITS OF MISCHIEF (written as TR Burns), the MAGGIE BEAN books, and RUBY'S SLIPPERS.

When I'm not writing I love sewing, cheering on the New York Giants, and spending time with my husband and two furry children in our old farmhouse on Long Island's beautiful North Fork. I'm also honored to work with fellow kidlit writers as a mentor in the Stony Brook Southampton Children's Literature Fellowship Program.

I love hearing from readers, so if you'd like to say hello, please do! I can be reached at

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Reading!
