I am an author and illustrator who lives in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. I work at the Akron-Summit County Public Library as an Accountant/Payroll Supervisor. I love working for the library. I have always had a passion for reading and writing my own stories and going to the library as a kid was always a special treat for me. I was able to leave my troubles behind and immerse myself into new worlds. My books were my best friends growing up and they helped me to connect with other people. As a neurodivergent person, that has not always come easy for me.
I have always wanted to write my own books, and last year I finally accomplished that with The Garbage Bandits book. It was an idea that was in my head for 3 years before I finally sat down and started it. The story is about a group of animals who stay up late, skate really fast, eat trash, and also save the city. They call themselves the Garbage Bandits. When a local villain creates a toxic sludge that makes the trash come alive and wreak havoc on the town, the Garbage Bandits step in to help. I hope my book helps other kids just like I have been helped by books. I also hope they enjoy it and that it makes them laugh.
