Hi! I'm a children's author and new to blogging. My guess is that you have some/many of my books in your library.

My hope is to network with parents, teachers, and writers through my own blog.

I plan to share helpful writing exercises at least twice a week. Please come visit. If you like my blog, please share it with others!

I hope to talk to you soon....
