Author Showcase


Corey first realized she wanted to be a writer when she was in elementary school. Like all writers, she had a plan ... and she knew she would write books like Judy Blume. It wasn't until two decades later that her love of writing came back to her. It was then she realized her destiny is as a picture book writer.

As a mom, Corey sees wonderful opportunities to not only share a love of reading with kids, but to use those opportunities to help prepare them for life and spark their creativity. Her debut book Hop! Plop! is a story of friendship and creative problem solving.

Like Mouse and Elephant, Corey likes working with a partner. For her, collaboration is a great way to build ideas, look at things from new angles, and ultimately, create something new.

As an author, Corey has experienced the joys of publishing and the frustration of waiting. Hop! Plop! has gotten great reviews and was selected as a 2006 Picture Book of Distinction by the Eric Carle Museum. Publishing her next book has proven to be more challenging. The delays haven't dampened her enthusiasm, and she has a number of book ideas in various stages of development.

Corey attended Brown University and has a Masters in Deaf Education from Gallaudet University. She lives in Warren, NJ, and spends a lot of afternoons at playgrounds with her four-year-old daughter, Jordan, and three-year-old son, Josh. Corey has no free time, but if she did, she would spend it scuba diving!
