Here I am again

Posted Sep 10 2018 in ,

Hello everyone, I do hope you’re having a good summer and looking for new adventures, not to mention nicer weather, in the fall. For me, most of the summer has been trying not to melt or grow moss between my toes. Here in New Bern, NC, it’s been entirely too hot for my redhead’s body […]

Our Story Begins Edited by Elissa Brent Weissman Have you ever wondered when your favorite authors and/or illustrators started writing or doodling? Well, here’s your chance to find out about a number of them, because “they share fun, inspiring, and occasionally ridiculous things they wrote and drew as kids.” Twenty-six artists and writers submitted early […]

For the Love of Animals

Posted Jan 11 2018 in , , , , , , , ,

Happy New Year, everyone. Hope this year turns out to be the best one yet. I love animals and enjoy reading about them. Though I must admit I like some animals better than others. For instance, I don’t think it’s nice to keep reptiles as pets. It’s just a personal thing, but I keep thinking […]

Are You Looking for Books to Buy?

Posted Dec 7 2017 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Okay, here are some books that would NOT make my list for Christmas gifts. There are way too many gifted writers floating around who can encourage readers to aspire to not being just like everybody else. I like the books I read to not fit into formulas and I like the drawings to have some […]

Eek, the Gift-Giving Holidays Are Here!

Posted Nov 30 2017 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Much as I hate to admit it, this year’s almost done. It’s almost time for the gift-giving holidays. So, I thought picture and chapter books would fit the bill. I’ll mention older kids books next week.   BUT, I also have to mention that my 2nd novel, Emily’s Ride to Courage is, as of today, […]

What Good Writing Looks Like

Posted Oct 5 2017 in , , , , , , , , , , ,

I read a great many books during a year, largely because I review children’s books for the Children’s Literature Comprehensive Database, but also because I love to read. I don’t just read books published by the “trade” and “indie” publishers, but also self-published books that I find at conferences and book-signing events. Generally speaking, the […]

To Be or not to Be

Posted Sep 28 2017 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Should we always follow the path seemingly meant for us? I’m not sure I ever had a path meant for me, but I doubt that I followed it. In any event, the characters in these stories took different paths. Hope you enjoy them.   Ice Boy David Ezra Stein Illustrated by David Ezra Stein What […]

Are You Truly Good?

Have you ever pondered what’s good or innocent and what’s bad or corrupt and how do you tell who’s what? That’s what this anthology is about.   Evidently, there is a subset of people called “BookTubers,” who are a subset of people who publish regular information or reviews on YouTube. Before reading this anthology, I’d […]

A Horse is a Horse…

Posted Jun 24 2017 in , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As you’ve probably guessed, I love reading about animals, especially dogs and horses, but other animals are good to read about as well. I like fiction better than non-fiction, though I’ve read a number of good non-fiction animal books. My husband loves to sing the first verse of the opening song for the old TV […]

Whimsically Sweet

Posted Apr 27 2017 in , , , , , ,

My last collection of books was a wonderful mix of amusing picture books and novels for older children. I told you about the YA anthology in my last post, so this time we’ve got two picture books and a middle-reader, all of them a bit on the whimsical side.   The first one has winsome […]
