Big News!

Edited on Nov. 19 to add: Please read this post for an update regarding this news. 
* * * * *
I am thrilled to announce that I have two books coming out in 2016 under Sunscribe Publishers' children's imprint, Dancing Squirrel. I wrote the earliest drafts of my picture book  Josephine Abilene, Bona Fide Cowgirl and my chapter book Glory Osky: Perfectly NOT! over 10 years ago when I lived in Fort Worth, Texas, and I am so glad they both finally have a publishing home! Sunscribe is a new South Carolina publisher, and I am honored to be included in their debut list. 

This has been a long, twisting, and sometimes emotional road, but I am happy to finally be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have learned a lot along the way, but the most important lesson has been to never, ever, EVER give up. I have met so many wonderful writing friends over the years, and am excited to take this next step in my writing journey!

Thanks for helping me share my news, and Happy Writing!
