Her debut young adult novel, APPLE IN THE MIDDLE, is a coming of age story that tackles what it means to belong. The book received a Gold Medal for Young Adult Fiction from the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award, as well a Gold Medal in Multicultural Fiction from the Independent Publisher Book Awards. She has since published several more works including a new early reader series called JO JO MAKOONS, ANCESTOR APPROVED: INTERTRIBAL STORIES FOR KIDS, and NATIVE AMERICAN HEROES, part of the Scholastic Inspiring Leaders series.
