Welcome to My World

It’s a wonderful world. Click around.

This is where I connect with readers, parents, teachers, librarians, and anyone else who  treasures stories.

Here you’ll find out about new books and older books.

You can find my speaking schedule, or learn how to book me for a speaking engagement at your school, library, university, conference, or club meeting.

You’ll find advice for writers young and old,

and perhaps find some of my rambling thoughts. (Most often found on my blog A Country Mile!)

Click around. Send me an email. (Or better yet, real mail! With a stamp. Delivered by my wonderful mail lady. I WILL respond to every letter I get in the mail. I promise.)
