The love of children is what motivates me to create works that foster happiness and self awareness. I don't believe there is anything better than helping a child. With a Bachelors of Science in Psychology (Park University) and a Master of Arts in Counseling (University of Texas at San Antonio) and the experience I earned raising my own children, I know the workings of and what motivates the young mind. ​

​I spend as much time as possible with my family. My favorite past times are celebrating their birthdays, eating at our favorite restaurants (pasta, seafood), watching bad horror movies, laughing and making others laugh, and listening to the sounds of ocean waves on the beach. But if I'm ever feeling down, I think a slice of good, made-from-scratch pound cake can make everything better.

I believe that reading is essential to the development of a child. Reading sparks the imagination and helps children aspire to accomplish great feats and overcome challenges; helping them to believe they can do anything they want to do or be anything they want to be.

During my own childhood, I spent much of my summers at the Natchez Library reading books and dreaming of being a teacher like Anne Sullivan after reading the Helen Keller story. I wanted to be a gospel singer like Mahalia Jackson after hearing her music and reading her biography, and I wanted to become a writer after reading books by some of my favorite authors, including Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens).

My dream of being a writer became reality in 2015 when my first two books, How Fish Learned to Swim and Domino the Donkey (A Christmas Tail) were published by the Vassarris Publishing Group.

Thanks to all of my readers who help me to continue my dreams!

 

Guardian Angels Coloring Book

Guardian Angels Coloring Book

Spiritual, Religious, Children 7 & Under, Coloring Book.

Guardian Angels are believed to provide a spiritual presence to guide and protect all living creatures. This 8x5 by 8x5 coloring book was inspired by the guardian angel in the Heaven's Gift Book. It comes with two identical sets of 20 beautifully detailed, single-sided images that you can color twice or share with a loved one. The book was created as a calming source for those who want to disconnect (for a few minutes or a few hours) to focus on those things that represent goodness and peace.
