Happy, Happy, Happy

      I am ecstatic to let you know that my first children's book, World of Color, is almost through its final stage and will be released soon.  Excuse me while I do a happy dance :) I am so thrilled on how it turned out and I hope you are as well.  This book is for ages 4 to 8 and I am so proud to be not only the author but also the illustrator.  Color is so important in life it can affect our moods, behavior, and emotions.  It is found all around us but what if the only colors that existed were black and white?  That thinking was the inspiration for this book.

     My second book is Imagination Destination and it won't be long before it is out also.  I am still so amazed that this is even happening.  This book is longer than the first and more for the age range of 6-10.  Technology is wonderful and a huge part of our world but because of game systems, computers, and TV, children don't need to use their own imaginations as much. This book shows kids how they can use their imaginations to create a fun, new world while being active.  

     January and February have been very snowy and cold for many of us. Due to this weather, I have had some snow days at work.  It's great to have a day off and I took advantage of that time by working on some drawings and coming up with some ideas for my next book.  What do you like to do when you are lucky enough to have a day off? Read a book you have been anxiously waiting to have time for, write the next bestselling novel, sleep in, get caught up on chores or maybe go outside and play in the glistening snow?  I have been seeing some terrific pictures of kids building snowmen, snow sharks, and even snow superhero's!  They're amazing! Kids and adults both can be so creative.  If you have any snow pictures and would like to share, I would love to see them.  You can post them on my Facebook page or jus stop by and chat. I would love to hear from you.


Everyone stay safe and warm. I will keep you posted on my book release so stay tuned!
