A Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection


Thank you for taking a “paws” out of your busy day to visit me. My first book, published by Sleeping Bear Press, is rollin’ into bookstores July 2024. I wrote this book with my good friend and fellow Vermont College graduate, Renee Lyons. And the gorgeous illustrations are the work of illustrator Erin McGuire.

When most people think of Lady Bird Johnson, they think of her as the First Lady of the United States or the naturalist who beautified our nation’s highways. ROLLIN’ ON DOWN THE LINE profiles a little-known portion of Lady Bird’s life—her Whistle-Stop Tour.

Hop on board the Lady Bird Special and join the gutsy Lady Bird Johnson as she travels through the South and faces insults, booing, and danger!
