Lots of people ask me what it's like to write children's books. There is no one answer, but I'd love to share some thoughts with you. The bottom line is that it's different for everyone. But let's hang out and chat about it.

  1. I'll share my background and the ups and downs of writing for children.
  2. Read a story of your choice, if you'd like.
  3. Share some manuscripts.
  4. Play a game.
  5. Answer all your questions!

Of course, this program will be tweaked to best suit the age of the child visiting.

The only thing needed is a smile and some curiosity!
