Memoir is here!

Hello readers! 
I'm super excited to tell you my memoir, Longhand: One Writer's Journey, is finally available. Yay!
The most common question readers ask is, "Where do you get your ideas?" so herein lie the answers.  I hope these behind-the-scenes of book writing might inspire writers starting out and those who love the magic of words.  I've jotted a few memories from writing for the Los Angeles Times and also Scholastic, the world's largest children's book publisher: the rejections, heartbreak, joys, and beloved editors.  My privileged career has been intertwined with motherhood, the richest adventure of all.

I hope you enjoy the journey!

MEMOIR, almost there!

#1 A Journey of Faith

Hello, readers! 
     We've almost finished editing, proofing, and adding photos to my memoir, which has gone from Working-title to Real-title:  Longhand: One Writer's Journey.  I'll post here when it's published, so please stay tuned.  Thank you for being patient.
     Meanwhile, we've updated sixteen books.  Most of them have wonderful new illustrations by Cody Rutty, and all have fresh matte covers, the kind that are nice to hold and don't slip off your lap.  
     Here are the Prairie Rivers--I hope you enjoy them!

#2 A Grateful Harvest
#3 Winter Tidings
