I was born in Holyoke, Massachusetts on April 25, 1976.  At a young age I developed a love of reading, writing, drawing and creating that stayed with me throughout high school and college.  My work as a preschool paraprofessional and children's librarian nurtured this love into a desire to publish my own books for children.  My first picture book Too Much Glue was released by Flashlight Press September 1, 2013.  I have been lucky to visit thousands of students in hundreds of classrooms since that day.  The greatest part of my journey into publication has been connecting with students and teachers and attempting to impart some of my love for being an author onto them.

Too Much Glue has received national recognition.  It was the 2016 Montana Treasure State Award Winner in the primary division. In 2014 it received a Play On Words PAL Award which recognizes outstanding children’s products that engender play, advance language and appeal to all children for lasting value.  It received a 2014 Creative Child Magazine Preferred Choice Award in the Kid’s Books category and was chosen for the 2013 ABC Best Books for Children Catalog.  The book is also recommended nationally by Elmer's Glue and included in the Elmer's World of Glue Free Teaching Guide.  It was on the Alabama Camellia Award list 2014-15, Grade 2-3 Division and was a finalist on the NY State Charlotte Award list, 2015-16.

Our class Skype with Jason was nothing short of amazing. His experience as a teacher really paid off as he captivated a classroom full of Kindergartners. Our Skype was the first week of school and a fabulous introduction to Writer’s Workshop. My students still talk about being writers like Jason

I loved the way Jason explained the publishing process in detail while dangling the reading of the book until the very end. Between his magic trick and obvious enthusiasm and love of writing the presentation was a success from beginning to end.

Jason achieved the near impossible which was communicating to such a wide range of students in a fun, engaging and teachable way. We very much appreciated his approach, humor and lessons about writing and life in general.

As the Principal of Our Lady of Angels School, I followed Jason as he presented to our preschool through 8th grade groups. He is AMAZING. Each student was presented to at their level and every student, 3 years old to 13 years old, loved his presentation. Jason is one of a kind and if you’re lucky enough to have him come for a visit, you’ll want him back too! Top notch educational enrichment!

Having worked in a public school for thirteen years I know first hand how thin program budgets can be.  I try to work with schools to come to a fee that is fair.  Begin your booking today to see my fee list.
