Media Hits (BAM!)

Boy am I chatty! As a columnist and on-camera personality, I’ve shared helpful family computing tips on everything from keeping your kids safe on the Internet to researching laser eye surgery in well over a hundred media outlets. As a reporter, I wrote about local events/happenings, national trends, and even snuck in a few opinion pieces. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing dozens of well-known and award-winning kidlit authors and illustrators (note: award winning and well known are not always the same thing!). I’ve also written for a few book marketing sites. Here is an alphabetical-yet-random sampling of where I’ve appeared, not including online publications, blogs, social media, my 21 children’s books, or the times people wanted to write about me but didn’t (haha):
