About meI teach children's literature, adolescent literature, and nonfiction at the University of New Orleans, taught children for 20 years, and am the author of The Cat Who Loved Mozart (Holiday House, 2001), illustrated by Henri Sorenson and contributor to The Quilt of States by Adrian Yorinks. I have been editor of the JOURNAL of CHILDREN'S LITERATURE and a member of the committee NOTABLE BOOKS FOR THE LANGUAGE ARTS (NCTE). I am a member of ALA, NCTE, IRA, and SCBWI.

Nothing is better than curling up with my cats and a good book.

About my libraryHaving lost a large public library (2700 books or so) to the floods of Katrina in 2005, I am stunned at how quickly I have accumulated yet another large personal library (I am a huge fan of second hand book sales, specifically the Symphony Book Fair, held in New Orleans every spring). One collection within my collection includes more than 1000 cat books.
