Fun at Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day

I had a fun day today at the Grandparents Day event at my granddaughter’s pre-school, reading a prototype of my soon-to-be-released My Little Angel.

Since I didn’t have an official print copy of any sort, I made my own copy and she held the illustrations for me while I read the text from my iPhone!

(One little boy’s immediate reaction?  “I really LIKE that book!”)

Then she handed out my author cards to all the grandparents!

Fun to Meet SBPRA’s Suzann Durrette!

Traveling in an RV creates opportunities to meet friends one has never “met”!

Meeting Suzann

Meeting Suzann

I have known Suzann since my first book, Santa’s Birthday Gift, was published in 2009, but I was finally able to meet her at the Double S Ranch in Corpus Christi, TX on our coast-to-coast travels this year. Since I “thank” her in the Acknowledgements in all my books, it was fun to share a couple of my newest with her during our visit and to say “Thank You” in person!
