I have been working on a huge project that will take years to complete. Publishing these two simple books is the first baby steps into the project. It is exciting to finally be a part of Amazon after trying to figure it out for over two years! I am so grateful for the Kindle and that we bought one so I understand what I like and don’t like about reading different books on it. I really focused on making my books easy to read with a child’s head in the way and giving that child many opportunities to “turn the page” because they love pushing the buttons to turn the pages. I wanted to create a few books without pictures that focused on getting to know my children better and letting them use their imaginations. I hope readers will understand and appreciate this as they read the books to their children. I love being an author! All 4 of our children have different special needs.

We are grateful for our strong relationships with God, family, church family & friends. Also, the doctors, teachers, developmental specialists, The Boys and Girls Club & other team members who help us with our children. What amazing organizations and people! They have been such a wonderful help for our children & family.”
