Wonder-ful Squirrel News

Hello, everyone!  I apologize for my long absence.  First, it was the summer term, and now it is the fall term, with even more classes to prepare and teach--which I love to do!  One of my favorite classes to teach is transfer-level English Composition at a local community college.  The main textbook that I like to use has a new edition out, and many of the articles that I have used in the past are gone!  However, that just means that this new edition is full of wonderful new articles!

Since I have learned that I have earned a reputation around campus for championing women's issues in my curriculum (although I cover both genders and multiple races in my quest to subvert negative stereotypes), it only makes sense that this semester will lead up to a final exam based on none other than Wonder Woman! 

I'm really looking forward even more than usual to teaching this class!  In the meantime, there's more good news!

Squirrel Superhighway, or It's Good to be a Dog is almost completely illustrated!  I can hardly wait to share the finished product with you!  

I wish you a day full of squirrelly wonder!

Squirrel Superhighway Contract Signed

Hello!  I had the pleasure of signing the contract for my next children's picture book, Squirrel Superhighway on Friday, and I'm excited to share the news with you!  Squirrel Superhighway features a dog on a self-discovery mission who is surrounded by many graceful squirrels.  This will be another vocabulary booster in my series of feel-good stories for children of all ages and those who read with and to them.

Squirrel Superhighway will be published through Guardian Angel Publishing, which is the same publishing house that published Green Gooey Goop and Silly Moments, both of which are available as ebooks and in soft cover.  Squirrel Superhighway will be illustrated by the renowned artist, Vanda Lavar, who illustrated Tucker's Tale and Mr. Topper, the Potbellied Pig.

Look for Squirrel Superhighway soon, and I will post updates here on my blog!  Thank you!
