Hi, I'm Stef! I grew up in Connecticut, but have lived in Pittsburgh long enough to call it home. I studied sociology at BYU, worked at various jobs, then paused all that while I birthed and raised my five kiddos. A year before my youngest was born, I decided it was time to go back to school. By the time he was four, I graduated with a Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Penn State. 

During my Master's Program, I decided to try writing a book (a life-long dream) and immediately fell in love. Suddenly I knew what I wanted to do with my life! Writing books for kids sparks my creativity and makes me happy. I also love teaching children to read and developed my ABC See, Hear, Do Series to help my active youngest son learn to read in a simple and fun way. 

Welcome! I'm glad to have you here!
