Eventually she found herself using her journalism background in the world of publishing. and she turned her sights toward law and attended St. john's University School of Law. She went on to work as an attorney in a Manhattan Law firm. She wrote her book Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type in 1995, shortly after the death of her father. It took another five years, however, before the book was published. She stated in her bio that this book was not only her first published book but also the easiest book to write, taking her only about 20 minutes to jot down the story. The book went on to become a Caldecott Honor Book. While the book eventually met with great success, publishers rejected it repeatedly for several years until a publisher eventually called her with the news that it would be published. Her success as a children's author continued with books such as Diary of a Worm published in 2003 and winner of Parent's Choice Award Slver 2003 Picture Book, Diary of a Spider published in 2003 and Rescue Bunnies.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Worm is back again with friends Spider and Fly in this entertaining early reader based on the humorous tales of Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss. Readers will delight in the antics of Worm, captured in the familiar journal style, as he discovers that even teachers have birthdays. He tries to find the perfect gift for Mrs. Mulch. "October 6 I woke up worried. One more day until the party and I was still stumped." Full spreads and expressive spot illustrations assist new readers with plot development. Bottle cap chairs and mushroom desktops set in a forest classroom create a fun perspective for readers as they follow Worm on his quest. Simple vocabulary and large font make this a welcome addition to beginning-to-read collections and young fans of these three pals.-Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI (c) Copyright 2013.
