About Me

A school social worker by day and a mama by every other waking moment, I can typically be found laughing with my husband and two toddlers, drinking room temperature coffee, and enjoying spontaneous pajama dance parties just outside of Chicago. During every free scrap of time (and those minutes add up) I write fiction picture books and middle grade fantasy.

(Loos rhymes with “close.” As in, you try to pronounce it and I smile and say “close, it’s Loos!” and we both laugh and now we’re best friends.)
