My most recent children’s book is ready for purchase from Amazon. The models, my grandson Jack and husband Robert are proud to show it off! I’m delighted to share this story about a boy with great imagination who learns an important lesson about bees.
How it all began…
After knocking around Twitter for a time, I fell into a wild crowd. I became part of a global community using hashtags like #FP (Friday Phrases), #Iamwriting, and #writingcommunity. At first I stayed in the shadows. One Friday a tweet formed in my mind. I don’t even know where it came from. I checked my word count, and hit “tweet.” The earth didn’t shatter. No one replied, “Get off, this is for writers.”
So I challenged myself to post at least one tweet each Friday. I noticed that keeping my words under 140 characters helped my wordsmithing skills. I kept coming back. The participants were encouraging and during the week would often speak of their “works in progress.” Some were published authors, others just loved words and sharing thoughts.
After a few months participation, and meeting some of the most lovely people around the globe, the oddest question popped into my mind. What if I was a goldfish? Of course I knew about “fish out of water” themes in movies and books. But, what about a real fish? What would she have to say? And just like that, Goldfish Diaries was born.
For over two years she would come to the surface each Friday and play the #FP game. With the encouragement of those on twitter, I started drawing this precious being with a big heart and so much to learn from the world. And now she has her own book, which I share with you.

Introducing the two characters in Bully Pie. My husband Robert and our grandson, Lincoln were the actors who brought my words to life.
The book is based on a true story…something that happened to my siblings and me when we moved into a new home.
