Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a children's book author residing in the Westerville, Ohio area. I have 9 books published– my 10th book should be released in the next week or so. All of my books are for first time readers and they all rhyme. They all teach something.. from imagination, to helping to learn time, to eating healthy, to enjoying the company of family and friends.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My newest book to be released is called Kiss Away My Fears. It is a rhyming story, for a chronically or critically ill child. It reads like a letter – written by a family member to a child.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I enjoy writing very early in the morning.. or later in evening.

I would have to say Dr. Seuss.
What are you working on now?
I have 4 other books in the works.. I am not sure which will be the 11th.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am just now starting to promote my books… every day is a learning experience. I would say I have mostly used Facebook, and have been featured on www.Hometownreads.com. I also just started to blog and have a simple website.
