I'm pleased to say that I did it! Wrote a book, got published, and received a starred Kirkus review!

Dewey Fairchild, Parent Problem Solver is my book, and it's quickly becoming a series.

Thank you for letting me share here. It's terrific to be surrounded by people doing what I do.  :new

Congrats, Lorri. I recently read about a study that said creativity decreased with increasing age and acquired knowledge. The reason given is that we take shortcuts to a workable solution using what we already know and don't care to risk wasting time trying novel ideas. Younger people, like Dewey, I assume, would surprise us with their creativity.
