DK had two passions as a kid: sports and books. After her professional athletic career was over, she had kids and developed new passions: her kids and, well, still books. Now she combines those two passions to write and illustrate sometimes heartfelt and sometimes silly picture books.
She believes in the power of picture books to reinforce great imaginations, introduce new worlds, increase literacy and open-mindedness, and strengthen bonds between children and parents. She hopes to one day impact kids all over the world with her stories.
