So, I was mistaken …in a previous post I mentioned that I would be reading ALL BETTER at a Children’s Day Out school in Bedford; it is actually in Grapevine!


Please forgive my mistake.


I’m looking very much forward to reading with a fresh crop of kiddos. I’ll also be toting a stock of books with the hopes that a few parents will have sent money to purchase a book for their youngster.


Grapevine, here I come!

Last Thursday and Friday marked the first, of what I hope to be many, school visits to share my new novelty element book for children–ALL BETTER: A Touch-and-Heal Book!

My son attends Pre-K at our neighborhood Elementary and I personally could not have imagined a more supportive place to read MY first published book aloud than the spacious and inviting Sem Elementary library. The adorable and well-behaved Kindergarten and Pre-K students were very gracious to this newly published children’s author. What fun it was to experience the group dynamics of reading with a gaggle of attentive and interested youngsters again. (Since I stopped teaching 5 years ago, I sincerely miss read alouds the MOST . . . )

Sem’s friendly and helpful librarian, Sarah Lincoln, was very kind about the program I presented and has offered to share personal recommendations with any interested parties. I must admit, I look anxiously forward to reading with more of the kiddos in the DFW area.

 FYI: My next scheduled reading of ALL BETTER scheduled is January 24th in Bedford, Texas–more information to follow in future posts.

 FYI 2: A public book signing for ALL BETTER is scheduled February 9th at Barnes & Noble location in Plano, Texas, noon-2pm–please mark your calendar and watch for more information on this topic in future posts.

Happy Reading,
