Marketing Delight


The long road of marketinHopping ft cover 4x4 92g does have some delightful moments. Today I received a thank you note from Los Ranchos Elementary School Library, where I read one of my books to a second grade class. Included was a photo of the event and a note from the school librarian. It was signed by all the kids.

I’m not sure who had the most fun or learned the most from this experience: me or the second graders. I read my book “Hopping to the Moon” and was amazed with how much they knew about the Moon, gravity and outer space in general. We talked about what to expect on the Moon, how they might write their own story about going there and how other animals (kangaroos) might visit. We had a lively discussion.

Most of the children were there to check out books, but a few came by the table where I had my books piled. I was interested to see what stories the kids chose. Was it based on the subject matter (butterflies) or the covers? One little boy was so enthusiastic about “Camouflage” when he found that he could find all the animals hiding in the wild, he wanted to show the whole class. I ended up donating that book and two others to the school. As I left, I gave each child my brochure. Hopefully they took my brochures home, and I’ll be asked to return to the school for another event.

I am a storyteller. Writing and illustrating books for children, I have published over 35 titles. Three of my books, "Ants on a Log", "Camouflage", and "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Birthday Cake" have been published by a traditional publisher, Oak Tree Press. These are available from Oak Tree and Amazon as well as other outlets. The others are published by and can be seen on their website. Some of my stories are in prose and some in verse. All are designed for small children and young school children. My fiction stories are designed to delight these children and help them learn about themselves and the world around them. I also have a number of nonfiction books about animals, the natural world, and other cultures. I illustrate my stories with drawings and photographs. I hold a Master's Degree from UCLA and have taught school in California. I hope that young children and their adult companions will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
