Good news after a dry spell!

Coming Soon: Beep! Beep! Special Delivery

After a bit of a dry spell, I've had a good couple of months! I sold an action rhyme to Highlights High Five, a rhyming story to Clubhouse Jr, and a poem to Ladybug. This week I received my biggest royalty check yet for my beginning reader that came out over ten years ago...and best of all, I just signed a picture book contract for the Spork imprint of Clear Fork Publishing. The title is Beep! Beep! Special Delivery and here's the link if you want to learn more.

It feels so nice to share here with all of you who 'get it.'
