A Quicky Post

Today is going to be a short/quick post. First off I'd like to tell everyone that one of my children's stories titled Hippytoe Gets a Frog in her Throat has been published in Knowonders new book of 31 bedtime stories! My story is in their 4th issue. Click here to purchase your copy.



I'm impressed with this book and thrilled that Knowonder is doing these. One of my other writing friends, Anne Johnson, also has a story in this issue so congratulations to her too!

Tonight, I am the speaker for a writing group. It's my first time and I'm feeling a bit nervous!! However, I know my subject matter very well so I think I'll be ok. Wish me luck!

Well that's it for me this week, I told you it'd be quick! Tune in next week for my interview with Valerie Bouthyette, the illustrator for my book The Pea in Peanut Butter. She is also going to be illustrating the sequel titled Inside the Magic of Words. She does fantastic work!

See ya then!

  3. I love that little book that you have a story in and can't wait to purchase it. Remember, I have a new grandson on the way...due 7/21/13. This will give me new stories to read to Eli.

    BTW - you did great tonight. That was a packed room too.
