World Class!

Class Prep for Junior Grades 4-6
Okay I am ready!
Some very good questions today!
Captive audience
Steps to help!

The second part of my St. Luke’s School visit was a huge success! With the junior grades we discussed more on the publishing and marketing aspect of a book and what an author has to go through to get their book out into the world!

I had some amazing questions asked by some very interested students, making the day inspirational for me! Hearing what they thought of the story and pictures was so satisfying as they all assured me that the story was really really good! In fact, I even had some very keen students offering amazing ideas for my next book for Bugsy and Taz!

This is the feedback that I need to ensure that I hit the nail on the head with my entire thought process from start to finish, with successful results in the end!

All the students and teachers were so welcoming and so complimentary that I left the school with a huge heart filled with joy! What more could an author want but to see first hand how all their hard work has paid off and then some!

As I left the school for the day I was greeted with hugs and smiles from the primary children who remembered me being there for them the week before and as I walked to my car I felt such an immense sense of accomplishment and pride! My school had welcomed me home with open arms, open hearts and open minds!! Thank you so very much again St. Luke’s, I am truly proud of being a part of your history!

Returning to a World of yesterday!

Big thank you to Principal Marcia Lynch

Today was a very emotional and surreal day for me! I got to do the first of two reading days for the children at St. Luke’s Catholic School, a school I attended 50 years ago in kindergarten through to grade 5!

The primary grades were so much fun to read to as always, with their extreme enthusiasm and allllll their amazing questions and tales! It truly is the best experience seeing my book in a child’s hand and hearing them read it along with me! Having them tell me they love the book, or, they want to be a writer or see their eyes light up at the pictures just warms my heart!

I am ready…let’s read!!

Thank you again St. Luke’s for making my day so special and I look forward to next week!

World of honesty

Truly what it’s all about! 🥰🐾

Truly what it’s all about! 🥰🐾. There is no critic more honest than a child, if they like your book…you’ve succeeded!

There is no greater gift to a writer than seeing someone enjoy your hard work and efforts! For me, a child who picks up my book and loves it, is the the best feeling in the world! When they find the things I put in the book that are special little Easter eggs, I know I have reached them! 🐾🥰
