Fall is Here


Hello Fellow Creators,

Fall is here! At least the feel of Fall is here, even though Autumn doesn’t technically begin until September 22nd. I hope you all enjoyed the summer as much as I did. I think I will miss most the ballgames, the beach, and family game nights. But, I have to admit, I do love the Fall. I look forward to getting back to school routines, outdoor Fall activities, the cooler change in the weather, and setting out Fall decorations. What do you like about the Fall? Let me know in the comments below.

As you all know, if you have been following my blog, I have decided to follow the current trend in publishing by self-publishing my books. I have a picture book planned for the spring and I hope to publish a chapter book by October. It’s a story I wrote back in the ’90s and would love to see it in print. My difficulty though is in the illustrating. I hope to be able to come up with some decent line-art illustrations for the interior and a color illustration for the cover. It sounds easy, but I am new to this, so I’m just taking things slowly, learning as I go.

I also have some new writing tips I plan to post in the coming months, as well as new craft activities. I can’t wait to share them all with you!

Here is my latest attempt at illustration. I’m learning as I go, one step at a time. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Happy writing,

Check Out My Books

Check out my books on the My Books page. I currently have four traditionally published picture books, but I am branching out into self-publishing. Hopefully, this will be a growing list.
