Co-Author (with Irene Latham) of two books 
Poems of Race, Mistakes and Friendship and DICTIONARY FOR A BETTER WORLD: Poems, Quotes and Anecdotes from A- Z.  Both published by Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner Publishing Group.

AMAZING PLACES edited by Lee Bennett Hopkins, ONE MINUTE TILL BEDTIME edited by Kenn Nesbitt (former Children's Poet of the United States) and THE POETRY FRIDAY ANTHOLOGY SERIES edited by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong.
I perform a one person show called POETRY TIME. I also have a poetry writing and performance component that aligns with the Common Core Curriculum.

Presentation Description:
Performing children\'s poems of mine by heart.  I only use 2 hardback chairs, and my imagination.  The writing and performance workshops are geared to teaching students what steps I use to write and perform my own poems.  They will then do the same.  Each workshop seamlessly aligns with the Common Core Curriculum.
