I will talk a little about why I love to tell stories about my dogs, how I get ideas and read one of the books.There's an assortment of dog tales. Once upon a Poodle for those not yet reading or reading on their own—-and dog-lovers of any age.
The Upside-Down Gardener and The Adventures of the Poodle Posse series are for independent readers and those transitioning into chapter books. The first is a magical gardening story about a determined young girl and one weird gardening experiment. The second is a series of five wittily-written tales of adventurous poodles, including mysteries and holiday stories for Halloween, Christmas, Groundhog Day and summer. Visits May be scheduled beyond indicated hours. Includes a dedicated book for your child!

About the Author

I'm a mom, magazine contributor and full-time children's author for kids from 6-9. With almost eight books in my portfolio, I have lots of fun with four-legged friends in The Adventures of the Poodle Posse and Once upon a Poodle, and with a stubborn city girl in The Upside-Down Gardener. With a few Mom’s Choice Awards for excellence in Juvenile Fiction, a top pick on Amazon Children’s Bookshelf, great reviews from The Children’s Book Review and Midwest Book Review, and an endorsement from The Dove Foundation, I’m pretty immersed in children’s literature. And as much as I love writing kids tales, I love spending time in classrooms talking to them about the entire process.
