Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your support of my work. I have such fun sharing my books at schools, libraries and organizations. At every stop, I meet amazing kids and educators. I always leave feeling inspired.

My next public event will be Library Day at The Harvey B. Gantt Center in Charlotte. It was rescheduled due to inclement weather, but I'll post the new date as soon as it's available. I'd love to see you there.

Wishing you laughter, peace and lots of love.

Happy Reading,
