My Mission Statement

I write to serve, to unite, to educate. I write to share literature and flesh out ideas that may be of interest to others. I write to document an emotion, experience, or a blip in time. My mission is to write in such a way that the reader is reminded that we can find humor in all situations. It's one of the great blessings of life.

Oops, I forgot to tell you...but did you miss me?

I have been in Charlotte for the past four days for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrator's Carolinas fall conference. Whew. That's a mouthful, and I got an earful. We talked about so many amazing books, so I posted a few here for you. And we talked a lot about craft, the children's book market, and making it as a writer. One of the sessions was about the importance of our presence on the internet. A presenter even went so far as to say that many editors google the writers whose work they are considering. So I began to think about my tired old blog format, and I jazzed it up a little. Do you like it? All for you, darling readers! Well, I'm off to bed for now, but I didn't want to go one more night without putting these awesome books up for you to check out. Run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore or library! Reading with a child in your lap is precious time. Make sure you're reading the good stuff. Have a great night and more tomorrow!

And yes, the FAIR IS IN TOWN!!! Woo hoo!
