It’s a Great Day in this Writer’s Neighborhood!

The book has a pop emoji pillow in it!

So, Friday I sent an email to my illustrator, Joshua Wichterich. He has agreed and has sent a contract for illustrating the first book in my Festus Series. Festus is a Jack Russell pup who lives a charmed, farm life. I always feel like a kid on Christmas morning when I send one of my books off to the illustrator.

I feel even more excited when I get a sketch, sneak peek, or final file. My series about Festus is written on a higher reading level than my previously published books, yet it will be great for a beginning reader to learn new advanced vocabulary. Here is to a new venture and a new series!!

I am an English teacher, mother, and wife, but I love to write. I feel that I am blessed to be able to use my talent to write about my children's books, poems, short fiction, and parenting. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my experiences with beginning a writing career while focusing on my children and my job. I look forward to comments and to hear from my readers!
