Greetings and welcome to my writer site that I hope someday becomes my author site. This is a WIP.
MY BLOG is now here-Read Write Tell
Currently I am a librarian in a K-3 elementary school. For over 20 years I worked in a public library and ten of those years I also worked as a professional storyteller
MY PICTURE BOOKS
I am working on a series called MIXED UP EVER AFTERS and a series about a little girl named CAROLINA CASSIDY and a few other retold and re-invented fairytales. ZIP ZOOM JAKE AND THE QUIET TIME is out in query land.
MY MIDDLE GRADE NOVELS
HAPPY MEDIUM. Happy discovers her Spiritualist movement ancestors weren’t all that interested in chatting with the dead. Nope. They were more into the secret to immortality and taking over the world.
MY LIFE AS A TO-DO LIST Twelve year old girl giving herself an extreme personality makeover to gain her mother’s love.
WRITING LINKS I ENJOY VISITING FROM TIME TO TIME
Society of Children Book Writers and Illustrators (belonged and learned much from being a part of this organization for a long time. Regularly attend the Western Washington SCBWI Annual Conference. Midsized con that draws some of the best industry professionals in the world of reading and writing for children and teens).
Bookshelf Muse (this resource is chock full of information for writers and the home of Writer’s Thesaurus one of my go to resources for adding depth to my writing)
Query Tracker (the blog and site are a must have and read for searching editors and agents and learning the ins, outs, do’s and don’t’s of writing.)
Guide to Literary Agents Blog (I particularly enjoy the interviews with agents)
Verla Kay’s Childrens Writers & Illustrators Board (One of the best forums for writing for children and young adults. Filled with knowledgeable authors, writers, agents, editors working on and talking about the craft of writing, finding an agent, finding and editor, information on submissions. The list really is endless. And the support you receive from your peers on this site is AWESOME.)
