About the Author
I am a stay-at-home mom to four wonderful children who constantly keep me on my toes. I've got a very supportive husband and family that have allowed me to pursue this dream of mine. I am a former third grade teacher, and hope to teach some creative writing classes in the near future. My love of writing really developed when I was in college taking a Children's Literature course. Reading all those children's books and writing about them inspired me to write my own. I am currently in the process of getting my second book published, and continue to write when my busy schedule allows it. I am a native of Nebraska, but our family currently resides in Missouri. My hope is that everyone who reads my books will enjoy them as much as I've enjoyed writing them!
