I have some news to share! 

First, my new picture book, Caitie the Caterpillar was just released from Guardian Angel Publishing. This is my fourth picture book with GAP and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. 

Here’s a little more about the book:

Blurb: It is a beautiful day for milkweed, until Caitie the Caterpillar runs into Swift Sparrow. Soon, Caitie and her new friend Alexander Ant, must find a way to escape the hungry bird. As Caitie faces Swift Sparrow and her own fears, she begins the process of a beautiful transformation.


My second piece of news is my recent visit to Ringing Rocks Elementary School. It was a beautiful school with enthusiastic first graders. 



We read Teresa’s Shadow and discussed the writing process. I asked the question, “How long do you think it took me to write Teresa’s Shadow?” My favorite answer was, “10 minutes!” 

After we read Teresa’s Shadow we also talked about how shadows are made and even created some of our own shadows with our hands. 

It was a fun day and everyone was extremely welcoming at the school. As an added treat,I did a book reveal of Caitie the Caterpillar since it was just released. They were so excited to be the first group of children to see the new book.
