Many of you know I'm a short story and magazine writer. Well, I finally collected a bunch of EZ stories and compiled them into a little book. Best of all, my daughter made the line art for it. So, so fun to work together. I'd also entered a writing contest about the pandemic and although we didn't win, we are happy with the book, so released it ourselves. I wrote about both these short books here: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2020/05/my-short-books-for-kids.html

Thank you. I tell you...kids grow up much too quickly. I had such fun reminiscing. Now, if I could train one of them to become an editor. Haha!

Thank you all so much. The lock-down didn't really change our lives much--we are homebodies--but having the kids home has been a great blessing. And those cute faces make me smile every time too.
