Throughout my life, regardless of what else I’ve been engaged in, I have always taken the time to write stories. On a whim, I entered a contest several years ago, co- sponsored by Scholastic and Woman’s Day Magazine. François and the Tide was a top ten winner (There were five thousand entries.) This story is the first chapter in Granny’s Teeth – A Collection of Quirky Rhyming Tales, my first book. It took me several years to have the courage to take this risk. I am grateful that it was well received by critics.
I choose to write for children because I love the way they think. In addition, there aren’t enough stories featuring strong characters with disabilities who are outspoken, talented, and in control of some really funny situations. Bluebell Skinks and Mitzi Mufflin are two such characters. These books will be available shortly. I hope that you will check out the excerpts I posted on the individual book page for each on this website.
More postings will appear on my blog. Enjoy!
