Lovely Ad in Pledge of Future Glory Fundraiser

Each year I donate signed books to the Fundraiser Gala Dinner and Auction for A Pledge of Future Glory, partially sponsored by an old friend… This is the lovely ad they put in the program this year…

Kalpart is an Awesome Illustrator

Fun to see this from Kalpart, my awesome illustrator, since many of my characters are included… Kalpart has illustrated all nine of my award-winning children’s books!

How many characters can you find?

I found Manner-Man, Elisabeth from The Magic Word, Gimme-Jimmy, Santa’s Birthday Gift, and little Addie, who is my CureJM Jr. Reviewer and is one of my classroom kids in several books!!

The CureJM Fundraiser Website Updated!

I’m happy to report that the CureJM Fundraiser website, http://sbpra.com/curejm has been updated and my newest, My Little Angel, is now available as well.

As posted often:  Please remember that everyone can help by getting great books for kids and grandkids (and their friends) and support CureJM – Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease – at the same time! Please visit the on-going CureJM Fundraiser at http://sbpra.com/curejm where 50% of the cost of my award-winning children’s books goes to the CureJM Foundation. The names of many JM kids are included in my newly released 2017 book, “My Little Angel“.  Please help us find a cure for kids like Addie, Alyssa, Brookelyn, Cassie, Daisy, Dmitri, Eldon, Emma, Jaden, Kinser,Tristan, Zayden and all the other JM kids – and the many adults who also have this horrible disease!!!

Let’s help children learn to bring about a world where people treat others the way they themselves would like to be treated…

 

Please Meet Emma, my Junior Reviewer

This is Emma, who has had to fight not only Juvenile Myositis, but Leukemia!

Emma Loves My Little Angel

Emma has an indomitable spirit and a contagious smile, although spending much of her young life at Duke Hospital and Ronald McDonald House!  This is her comment about My Little Angel from her mother:

“She loved it. She has read it so much that she knows it by heart 🙂 she shows it off to everyone?!”

Emma Conley has also just been named the Mid-Atlantic States Miss Heart of the USA the “2017 Wise Country Petite Miss Heart of Freedom”!

“Emma is the 9 year old daughter of Anthony and Ida Conley of Wise County, VA.  Emma was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis at the age of 5 which is a rare autoimmune disease…18 months into treatment she was diagnosed with APML, a rare form of leukemia.  She has undergone many chemotherapy treatments and lumbar punctures but has kept her faith and her smiles.  She is a girly girl with high hopes and a bright spirit.  She has a big heart and touches the lives of everyone she meets in some way.”

Please also remember my CureJM Fundraiser, to help children like Emma…

Fun at Fallsington Elementary School

Fallsington Elementary School

Fallsington Elementary School

I had a wonderful Book Reading at Fallsington Elementary School yesterday! Since Fallsington is a “PA School of Character”, my books about Consideration for Others and The Golden Rule were especially appropriate!  I was able to share The Magic Word, Manner-Man, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys with the K-3 children and then My Fingerpaint Masterpiece with the entire school.  I was delighted that one of the questions asked was “Where can we get these books?”  (Fortunately, we are doing a Fundraiser with the school, so that signed books will be available!!)

 

Zayden is a Superhero on the Manner-Man Team

So happy to see this from Zayden’s Mom on Facebook, and wanted to share!

Zayden is a Superhero on the Manner-Man Team!

Zayden is a Superhero on the Manner-Man Team!

He’s wearing his Manner-Man Badge also!

Zayden is a CureJM warrior!  Everyone can help him fight his Juvenile Myositis by purchasing any of my children’s books through the CureJM Fundraiser at

CureJM Fundraiser

50% of the cost of the books goes to the CureJM Foundation to help find a cure for this so-far incurable children’s auto-immune disease.  You can also leave a name for any child or adult you would like acknowledged in my next book, along with Zayden and his sister Lily, as well as Jaden, Matthew, and Alyssa.

My other books include

The Golden Rule (Treat others the way you’d like to be treated)

Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! (About computers and good listening)

My Fingerpaint Masterpiece (See Art with your Heart)

Gimme-Jimmy (How a Bully learns to Share)
