What's New?

Signing All My Books at Holiday Market

Lord of Life Holiday Market last year

Hope to see some familiar local faces when I sign all 14 of my picture books at the Holiday Market Saturday, December 2, 9-3. Feauturing fine craftspeople from around the region, it's a fabulous, fun chance to find those one-of-a-kind presents. The event will again be at my church, Lord of Life Lutheran, 2801 Frederica Road, Saint Simons Island, GA 31522.

My First Board Book Available

Baby's Firsts is coming in board book format
Baby's Firsts is out in the world as a board book. 

A board book version of Baby's Firsts came out from Charlesbridge May 17, 2022. This is the perfect format for babies and their young siblings to enjoy this classic look at the milestones of the first year. The title has been the perfect baby and first birthday gift--and this new format makes it even more perfect. With 1- and 2-year-old grandsons, I am over the moon kmowing they can have and hold and do their worst to one of my books! Parents who only buy board books for their 0 to 3-year-olds will now have this choice.

What a pleasure it was to do my first virtual author visit with illustrator Rebecca Evans for the BookMark of Neptune Beach, FL! We interviewed each other, giving viewers a look at how the words and delightful illustrations came together. And we demonstrated an opposites game you can play at home. Watch it here.
