Hello Friends! Here’s a snapshot of my life. 

I’m a native Hoosier living in Bargersville, Indiana with my husband and lovable pug, Boomer. My inspiration for Violet Jenkins Saves the Day came from growing up in a large family with over 40 cousins. My parents took me and my brothers on many fun-filled family vacations plagued with memorable disasters. I also have a special aunt in my life that was my muse for Aunt V.  

When I’m not writing, you can find me in the classroom doing science experiments or at the lake boating with my family which includes my parents and three grown sons (who, once upon a time, were my favorite shenanigators in the classroom). 

Violet Jenkins Saves the Day

Romana Quimby meets Cheaper by the Dozen in this uproarious debut novel that celebrates the values of perseverance and family. Violet Jenkins Saves the Day marks the beginning of a heartwarming series, comprising four standalone books, each capturing the hilariously unforgettable moments from Violet’s 5th through 8th grade years. A must-read for aficionados of the Vanderbeekers and Penderwicks.

When Violet Jenkins wants something, she’ll do almost anything to get it!

Violet Jenkins is determined to get her sometimes too-large family to Florida, where she will be reunited with her kindred spirit, Aunt Vivian. They share a love for all things aviation, space, and shenanigans. Violet activates a plan, but unforeseen and outlandish obstacles lie ahead. Will one of these obstacles prove to be too big for even the cleverest of schemes? Take a trip with the adventurous Violet Jenkins and enjoy the ride!
