Coming Soon...


The time has FINALLY come! ALPHABET ZOO is coming to life. Thank you to 4RV Publishing and Vivian Zabel for believing my story worthy of publication and to C.E. Dale for so beautifully bringing my words to life. My author copies have been ordered and will arrive soon for any who would like to purchase directly from me and/or have a signed copy. In the meantime, it is also available on the 4RV Publishing website, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

I purchased this book recently and just finished it this morning. I LOVE IT! Way to go, Tara Lazar! 

It is such a fun way to build vocabulary and language growth. While technically written for kids, I enjoyed it immensely and think any adult would as well. Some of the words are familiar, but many are unfamiliar and so fun to say, learn how to pronounce and how to use. 

I encourage you all to check it out and become an aficionado of the scintillating language within so others are flabbergasted by your confabulation at your next soiree or shindig.

Happy reading!

Memorial Day Blessings

On this day, we honor and remember those brave souls who fought and died for our freedoms in this great country. Now, more than ever, we must come together and be better. A better country, a better people, a better land. Do not let the deaths of all those heroes be for naught. 

Thank you to all who have, and continue to, serve. May God bless you and yours.

Always remember, never forget!

Birding Fun


Well, this is completely unrelated to writing (with the exception of a niggling PB idea based upon my recent activities), but I have been bird watching as of late. I went so far as to buy a couple bird guides at Barnes & Noble yesterday to aid my attempt at determining which bird I was observing yesterday in my yard. As I watched the little baby birds and their mama, a new idea started dawning on me and is working its way up through the periphery of my brain.

It got me thinking about bird books and what may already exist. I am about to head out on vacation with my family but will be hitting the library upon my return to research (so, I guess this does then have to do with writing!). 

In the meantime, I would love to hear any recommendations and/or your favorite PBs about birds, if any.

Thank in advance!

Happy Earth Day


As we mark the 52nd year celebrating Earth Day, resolve to do your part in preventing harm to our planet, wildlife and humans. Pick up trash, reduce waste, recycle and reuse. We all need to be better about doing so each and every day, but, today, do so and make the commitment to be better going forward. I will do the same!

Mission Complete


March was a busy month full of amazing daily posts and so many mentor text suggestions. Thank you to Rate Your Story and all of the wonderful authors who provided daily inspiration and knowledge to aid all children's authors in their writing journeys. I learned so much and will continue to do so as I read through my list of all the mentor texts. 

I highly encourage you to check it out and take the pledge yourself in March 2023.
