"My 8th grade teacher once said to me,
'Charlotte, you will become an author one day.'
I didn't believe her.
But look what happened..."

I am the author of 23 children's books.

Among them are The House on Walenska Street, winner of the Carl Sandburg Literary Arts Award, and Our Snowman Had Olive Eyes, which received the Society of Midland Authors Children's Book Award.

My novel, My Chocolate Year, is a Sydney Taylor Notable Book,

and my picture book, First Rain, is a PJ Library Selection.

Sweet Review

"...reflects a certain childhood sweetness that evolves into a more poignant understanding of the realities

I would love to come to your school!

I speak at libraries and bookstores, too.

Write, write write. About anything.
Your cat, your dog, your grandmother. 
Write from your heart.
And read, read, read.
