A little backstory

Hi, so glad you took a second to stop in. When I decided I wanted to be a writer, I began writing, which led to blogging, which led to writing for a regional newspaper and magazine. In the early days I can remember saying to an illustrator over coffee one day, ” I am going for the Caldecott!” I would eventually learn that I should have said Newbery Award….. oops….I just knew that writers seemed to get a pass.  The first thing I like to say to young writers is that we all have a voice. Honor your own writer’s voice. Now write the world!
