About the Author
I think of myself as an imagination enabler; a dreamer and a writer of children’s books and custom stories for struggling or reluctant readers. I believe in fairy tales and superheroes. I also write flash fiction, short stories, eulogies and essays; and I hope to finish the novel that I am working on before the end of the year. The empty nest has helped my writing, but I still love to be with my husband and my children (5), and grandchildren (5). There is an adorable little infant that I babysit, she sleeps and I write. There is also Chica, the little brown dog and two cats, one of whom is P.B. Cat; my writing helper and sometimes pen name. The book Home Alone evolved from a conversation with my granddaughter Haylee and I had when she was preparing to be a latch key child. The answers to all of the questions in the book were: run, hide, cry, and call mom. I asked her friends the same questions and got basically the same answers. Together we chose the most important questions and created an interactive book for children and their parents.
