She resides in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and is a founding member of, and art director for, the Children’s Literature Council of Pennsylvania.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- A book written by a sixth grade boy, co-authored with his mother. Super Cluck is a chicken from outer space, accidently left on Earth as an egg, and adopted by the kind Mrs. Cluck. Soon after he hatches it becomes evident that Chuck Cluck has some unusual attributes--his large size, amazing strength, and ability to fly. Children attracted to "Super Hero" characters will delight in Super Cluck's story. Lloyd's bright watercolor-and-pen illustrations are often more detailed than the usual beginning-to-read fare; many of the chicken coop scenes are delightful. Readers will be awaiting the further adventures of this chick. Meanwhile, Robert and Super Cluck can serve as role models for aspiring young authors. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
