From the Author

The women and men in my book are heroes who impacted the history of our country and world.  Some are well known and others less known.  My idea was to offer brief poems with beautiful illustrations to children in an effort to encourage further reading experiences about heroes...these and other heroes.  For each hero, I read several books :  biographies, autobiographies and history books so I could learn about each person.  Janice Hechter, the illustrator, studied the heroes from photographs and/or drawings at different times in their lives and included beautiful detail in the illustrations.  For example:  the illustration of Maria Tallchief has her tribal sign on the stage curtain and Mark Twain is reading "Rhymetime" !

More About the Author

I am an independent author living in Connecticut, having grownup in Michigan. My careers span over 30 years mostly in the field of writing and translating for the deaf. I began letter writing in Washington, DC, in the U.S. Senate, and moved on to the U.S. House of Representatives. Composing and writing letters to constituents was a challenge for a young college graduate, but I enjoyed the work and I learned a great deal about researching issues and composing interesting letters. Most recently, I have translated for deaf students at college level throughout Connecticut--still working in the literacy field by getting information to speaking deaf students. Yet another challenging career, and one I am still active in.

I have included illustrations from my children's book: "Hooray for Heroes!". This book is available from Amazon and is leveled at readers in 4th grade up. I wrote short rhymes about 13 women and men who impacted our country and the world, and had these heroes illustrated by artist Janice Hechter. In October 2010, "Hooray for Heroes!" received a Finalist place in the USA Book News for children's nonfiction writing. In May, 2010, "Hooray for Heroes!" won Honorable Mention in the San Francisco Book Festival. Here's a quiz: Can you name the heroes on this page? Who do you recognize? Hooray for books!

"Duck Tape 2" is also featured. Finished in September 2010, it is a sequel to "Duck Tape" and is about recycling and cleaning up the Earth. Artist Toby Mikle did the illustrations and it has been entered in the New England Book Festival. Toby Mikel is a creative illustrator and did the illustrations for "Santa's Hat" and "Duck Tape". Both of these books: "Duck Tape" and "Santa's Hat", have also won writing awards. Thanks for reading!
