When my first Siamese cat gave birth to six kittens on my bed, my appreciation for differences and the love of cats started. Cats and students have been a big part of my life for fifty years. Creative Writing was among the high school English courses I taught over my forty years in the classroom. I always wrote with my students. It provided me with knowledge of the assignment and led me down my own path of discovery. After retirement I was able to follow my passion of writing for young readers. I enjoy reading my books in elementary school classrooms and talking to my audience. They always provide me with amazing ideas and I have been able to use some of them to create new stories. I live in Colorado with my husband and one senior cat. I also enjoy being an active grandmother.
I'm sitting in a local book store, my creature alphabet books on the table in front of me, a line of buyers waiting for my autograph when a customer says, "When will you have more of these alphabet books? This is a such a fun way to teach kids new words."
I have just read excerpts from Schrinkler, Wogler, and Garbula and say, "Thank you so much. That is my goal in writing these books. I am not sure how soon I will have more books in print, but my illustrator and I are currently working on the letter C."
"I love the illustrations. The colors are so inviting for young readers and the illustrations really help young readers learn new words," someone in line says.
My vision for 2020 is a hope of my creature letter books catching on. Schrinkler has been extremely popular and customers have eagerly asked for more.
