I'm a children's author and former environmental attorney inspired by oceans, kraken, high tech, and more. I write middle grade novels and picture books.

My works include Hana Hsu and the Ghost Crab Nation (Razorbill, 2022); 
Manatee's Best Friend (Scholastic, 2021); A Morning with Grandpa, illustrated by Christina Forshay (Lee & Low Books 2016); a spidery poem in Thanku: Poems of Gratitude, edited by Miranda Paul, illustrated by Marlena Myles (Lerner Books 2019); and a sci-fi short story in the anthology, Don't Touch That!: A Sci-Fi and Fantasy Parenting Anthology,  edited by Jaymee Goh (2022); art in the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art New Waves 2012 exhibit; and art and infographics in Huffington Post, Oceana, and World Wildlife Fund.  

​I co-founded Kidlit411, a resource website for children's writer and illustrators.

I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, went to Yale College and Harvard Law School, and was lucky to do what I loved for over a decade, protecting the oceans at the U.S. Department of Justice and the non-profit group Oceana. Now I'm even luckier, spinning stories for kids. I live in Virginia Beach with my family and a floofy cat.
