Two Gold Medals! 2018 eLit Awards

Winner of 6 Awards

So happy to share the news that A Penny for Your Thoughts is the Gold Medal Winner for Poetry in the 2018 eLit Awards, and The Golden Rule is the Gold Medal Winner for Children of All Ages!!!

Treat Others the Way You’d Like to be Treated

What wonderful news to receive!!  It was especially fun since we are now traveling and when the results were announced by email, I had forgotten that I had entered The Golden Rule instead of My Little Angel, since I hadn’t entered these awards before & Angel will be eligible next year… I went back to see if I recognized any authors & found myself again!

So for the first hour, while sightseeing, I was exuberant about A Penny for Your Thoughts winning its fourth Gold Medal… and an hour later I discovered that The Golden Rule was also a Gold Medal winner!!!

So great to have the eBooks win Gold!!!

Fun Reading to Combined Kindergarten Classes

Kindergarten Reading

I had a lovely morning reading to combined kindergarten classes at my granddaughter’s school.  She was so happy to be my “illustration holder” – and thanks to my awesome illustrator, she is the little girl on the My Little Angel cover!

They also loved The Magic Word, Manner-Man and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys!  Amazingly attentive children!!!


My Kid Reviewer, Ashlyn Rainn, sends me messages!

What fun to get text messages from my Kid Reviewer, Ashlyn Rainn!

Ashlyn is now 6 yrs old, and has become a very successful Child Model. She has been one of my favorite fans since she started reading my books at about age 3!

Request for Books

I had to respond that My Little Angel was my last children’s book…

She reads my books to her Class…

Winner of 4 Awards

I love it when I receive unsolicited comments about my books… This is a lovely email about A Penny for Your Thoughts… Thank you, Cindy!

“I haven’t been able to put A Penny for Your Thoughts down yet. You have truly composed some of the most thought provoking, sensitive poems I have ever read.

When I read them, I say, “yes, that’s it exactly, how did she put that feeling into words?”

This book is so enjoyable to read. Thank you a million…

Its place is right on my coffee table for all to enjoy.”
