 I have a blog where I review books for children. Carla's Cloud Catastrophe is a funny and imaginative book for children ages 4-8. Carla is missing her birthday party because the clouds are falling from the sky into the town where she lives. Can you imagine if that reallly happened on your birthday? What would you do? It seems silly but oh what fun stomping through the clouds might be.

If mom or dad wants to read more about this fun book by children's author Beth Bence Reinke one click on the link will take them right to it.

It is with renewed interest and passion that I am pursueing writing even more books for children. Please check back often for the progress I am making and maybe even some book signings you may want to attend. My first signing will be at Riley's Childrens Hospital here in Indianapolis....
I have changed the template for the website to fit our new home and where I now find inspiration for my writing...in  the  hills of Brown County Indiana. The beauty here is spectacular in a woodsy way, giving visitors the feel of  coming home. Log cabins, small town hospitality, and...

Welcome Friends.

My Favorite Part of a New School Year

My favorite part of starting a new school year or a new writing project is gathering my supplies. I love notepads, sticky notes, fun pens, and goofy paper to write my stories. What is your favorite part of starting a new school year? Is it the new teacher, making new friends, being in a new grade, or learning new things? If you really don't like school, is there one thing you can try this year to make it better? Write and let me know how your new school year is going? I would love to hear about it.

This season has been filled with many natural disasters which can be more than frightening for young children.

Writers often come to a place in their writng and in life, that requires them to make choices. The choices are personal, complicated, public, private, difficult, heartbreaking, exciting, real or make believe. Whether the choices are of a personal nature or involve the road a character insists on taking,  sometimes life's story gets out of control. In real life we cannot always control events that happen. As a writer we try hard to control the story but even on the page characters behave badly or the author gets blindsided by the good and bad just around the bend in the road. 

How do you handle when life gets out of control? 

I cry, I pray, and I write......stay tuned.
