Had a Blast at the River City Book Bash

The River City Book Bash was on Saturday, July 20 in Cincinnati. It turned out to be a super fun event, and I’m really glad I decided to feature my children’s books, as there were several kiddos, parents, and grandparents in attendance. Here a are a few pics of some of these sweeties with my books. I love my job!

Buzzing into School Today

I had a great time as the “mystery reader” for my son’s first grade class this morning at Buckner Elementary (that’s my son sitting by me-at least he’s not old enough for Mom to embarrass him yet). I read Fuzzy Buzzy’s Treasure to them and gave every kid a cute pom-pom bee. The kids loved the story and had lots of questions/comments. A great big thank you to all the kids, to Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Collins for letting me share today.

Like learning to ride your bike without training wheels. Learning to tie your shoes. Learning to read and write. Speech impediments. Getting glasses. That first day of school–so scary and exciting at the same time! Braces…ugh. Bullies and big brothers, and a multitude of bruises. Let’s not forget peanut or bee allergies.

Then there were tougher things. Losing grandparents. Divorce. Perhaps even poverty and abuse. Things we don’t understand fully as adults. Some of us had to grow up a lot quicker than we should have.

Fuzzy Buzzy has landed!

At long last, Fuzzy Buzzy’s Treasure is buzzing to life and available now in print on CreateSpace! It’ll be up on Amazon in the next 3-5 days. I’m very happy with how it turned out and I want to again say THANK YOU to all the wonderful sponsors who helped me give Fuzzy Buzzy her wings. I’m planning to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Xerxes Society for bumblebee conservation, so your purchases and donations will go to a great cause!
