I’m thrilled to share the news that White Rose has won the 2019 Malka Penn Award!
This annual award is for works addressing human rights in children’s literature, and I’m so incredibly honored that the committee chose White Rose.

I’m thrilled to announce that A Kiss Before Breakfast, a project I submitted to the SCBWI WIP translation grant, has won the award!
Translation is a relatively new obsession for me, but the source text (Un beso antes de desayunar, a picture book from Spain) has been one of my family’s favorite books for years. The text is so lovely that I couldn’t stop thinking about it and had to give it my best shot.
