I believe play is important work. That also means fighting for a clean environment. I speak up for playgrounds (very fun) and against coal ash (not so fun).

Kind Words

  • Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with Nelson and me. Your books tell such powerful stories! I am enriched a thousand, thousand fold.
