Hello to all!
My background as a teacher taught me how to understand the potential of children and capture their imagination. Their excitement became an emotional ladder to my writing.
Writing triggers my spirit to delve deeply into the mind and heart of a child. I like to think that my books caress a child’s soul…so that they empathize with the deaf child in Emma’s House of Sound, the blind boy in Dakota Help Me See the Light, and identify with Santa whose toys disappear in Santa in Oooh, Santa’s Toys Disappear in St. Augustine.
My books are fun, but children learn the prerequisites of life! I write with my heart and know their little souls learn how to be caring and loving people.
