I’ve begun the query process for my short story about a young girl’s experience with elephants and for a picture book about a young boy in 1930s Michigan. He fears that his father will make a poisonous mistake with his plan for a beverage concocted with the help of something that grows in their yard!
This past spring, I put the finishing touches on a picture book that blends Texan kids’ wishes for snow and my experience with that “white stuff” in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I will soon begin the query process for this one, as well.
My chapter book about a girl growing up in a small town continues to take shape. To say that this child is a “worrier” is an understatement, and the challenges she faces present themselves at every turn.
“Slip of the Lip,” my short fiction, appears in the 2018 edition of the U.P. Reader
