It's Mama's birthday!!!

Mama's New Do, my first, real, hold-in-your-hands picture book, was released today by Wandering in the Words Press!

I can't begin to thank Mama's marvelous illustrator (and my friend!), Tara Britt Story, and our sensational editor, Jen Chesak!! I wrote Mama's story, but they brought her to life...

Counting sheep is for amateurs.  Counting narwhals is for the seriously sleepy.  After all, jousting, pole-vaulting, and playing in a ring-toss tournament with some horn-headed Arctic whales is much more rest-provoking than watching a lamb hop over a fence!  If you need to catch a few winks, put on your winter coat, cozy up to the campfire, and roast some Polar s'mores with me in The Nighty-Night Narwhals.

So began my cover letter....

After 64 stories and 268 rejections, I received an acceptance and am so excited to share my book with you.

Thanks for stopping by and please check out The Nighty-Night Narwhals at
