Author Q & A
  • Q: What inspired you to write "Mommy Feels BIG THINGS"?

  • A: After many years of infertility, I was over the moon when my daughter was born. And then the unthinkable happened- after my miracle baby arrived, so did my Postpartum Depression. A few years later when my son was born, I had a lot more resources in place to ensure I had the postpartum support that I needed physically and mentally after he arrived. It was still rough, but at least I knew what was happening. I didn’t think about preparing my daughter for mommy’s mood swings until I saw how deeply round two of my PPD affected her. 

  • Q: Can you share insights into your writing process?

  • A: I like to take a topic that is causing familial distress, and then show children how to navigate through it in a healthy and uplifting way. I then map out my ideas on a plot diagram until things begin to come together, with more and more detail each round. What can I say? Once an ELA teacher, always an ELA teacher!

  • Q: What key themes do you hope readers will take away from your books?

  • A: I want my readers to find a reason for joy and for hope again. I want them to be able to see that they have the power to bring that to fruition in their own lives. Even little ones can do big things.
