I am an independent author of children's books. I am also and more importantly, a mother of 3 adult sons and grandmother of two gorgeous boys; a USMC veteran, and was a nurse for almost 18 years (now retired from nursing). My most enjoyable activities are video chatting with my grandchildren, reading, writing, and dancing, to name a few. My biggest pet-peeves are tardiness and lack of honesty. I strongly believe in "the golden rule" of doing unto others as you would have done unto you, and have learned that giving is much more satisfying than receiving.
Books and writing have been a passion of mine ever since I can remember and stories just "pop" into my head at any time. When my children were little I made up stories for them but never had the chance to write them. Now that they are grown I am writing children's books loosely based on those stories (with some improvements). My first two book series are "gendered" by name; however, they are meant to be enjoyed by boys and girls alike!
All the stories in the "Tall-Tales for Jacob" series share the same primary character - Jacob, an amalgamation of all 3 of my children. My first book and first in this series is entiled "The Birthday-Makers." It will be published late 2013 and features illustrations done by me, so please be kind when doing reviews! Next in the series are "Where Spaghetti Comes From" and "A Puppy Named Kitty;" both coming in 2014. The next series will be "Tall-Tales for Katie" with the first book "That Doesn't Scare Me... (Much)!" portraying a character based on personal childhood friends and children of old-time friends and neighbors.
