Working with editors already on the next two Rosa books! With the expert help of Heather at THEAQLLC we have made Rosa’s Red Apron into a better story–about helping in the kitchen now
Rosa’s shell, just needed a bit of tweaking.
The illustrator assigned to these books, Rebecca Zeissler is such a talented woman! I cannot wait to see what she has in store for readers!
But in between writing press releases and blogs and articles for the Sun News and disability-marketing.com. I still write poetry and short stories and am revising a novel for YA
Here is some news on that front (poetry in this case)
So excited. Very thankful to Matt Warren of the Ghazal Page for accepting my poem, Sunset at the Beach for an upcoming issue and to Jacinta White of Snapdragon for Accepting Moon Flower into that magazine’s September issue
A writer’s work is never done!
I am busy working on PR, blog hops etc for Summer in a Bowl and also at the same time working on poems, my usual quota of articles, and coordinating with my publisher on revisions in the texts of the NEXT TWO Rosa books–Rosa and the Red Apron and Rosa’s Shell
Heather Zeissler of THEAQLLC has been wonderful to work with.
If you want me to come to your school to talk about the process of writing picture books or to talk to your group about how I got started writing picture books, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

On the Fiona McVie post–you have to cut and paste the url to arrive at the link
it seems that wordpress does not want to make the entire link live so when you click you are just clicking on part of it! Well, I tried to fix it, but just in case……
Fiona McVie in the UK interviewed me and that interview is live today!
