My love of anything having to do with dolls and dollhouses started long before I became a serious doll collector. As children, dolls are our playmates, our best friends, and (in the dark of the night) sometimes our protectors. This web page is a place for me to share with other doll lovers of all ages, the dolls I have spent my whole life collecting. Make sure to click the "Older Posts" button at the bottom of the page in order to see the whole collection.

I love dollhouses so much I thought I make a miniature one to wear with me wherever I go. One day I wore it at the library and felt a little tug on the necklace. When I looked down, I found a toddler reaching out her tiny hand to touch it, with a big smile on her face. It was so sweet. Her father had to pull her away in the end.
I never did figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I graduated from college with a BFA in illustration, have worked as a children's librarian for eighteen years and would eventually like to be a full-time author. I live with my pets, a parrot and a tiny toy poodle. I was born and raised in California but have come to also love Utah where I now live.
