Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving. Mine was wonderful. Amazing food and great company.  I was also lucky enough to have the week off, it was so nice! I actually had time to work on illustrations! I didn't get much else done though haha. 

This holiday is the time to share what you are most thankful for. I am thankful for so many things in my life. My family, friends, health, my job (even if it does drive me crazy sometimes lol ) I am so grateful that this year I was able to see a dream of mine realized. I had my very first children's books published! It's still feels so unreal to me.  I have loved to draw since I was little and I finally am able to use this passion in what I hope is a life long career. I had my first author signing the previous week and it went well. I got to meet some amazing authors, chat with some terrific men and women who I hope will stay in touch and check my books out on I look forward to more signings in the future. 

Tell me what you are most thankful for, just head on over to by Facebook page :)

My First Author Event Soon!

I am having my very first book signing this month, Nov.21 a few days....squeal!! It will be at the very beautiful Greenbrier Resort here in WV during the West Virginia Reading Conference. There will be so much going on there, author signings, storytelling and other reading presentations as well as the opportunity of having lunch with your favorite author.   I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. I've been trying to prepare for the event. I have some decorations for my table, goodies to pass out and of course some promotional items as well. The one disappointment I have is that I won't have my books in print to sign due to some technical difficulties on my publishers end. I am going to go though and promote my e-books, make some connections, meet some wonderful people and have a great time! I can always remind people if they enjoyed my books and want an autograph, they can always go to It's easy, just look up my books and send me a request :)
If you happen to be there, make sure you stop by and say hi!
Here is the website where the event is happening and more about the event:
