It’s funny, but it’s never been a problem for me because I just don’t view times when I am not writing as being “blocked.” I view it as just not being a good, creative moment...and I try to do something else. I only write when I am moved to write. I am an artist as well as an author, so when I’m not writing I create paper collages that I sell at art shows. As long as I am doing something creative, I never feel stifled. But if I had to face deadlines, I am sure I would confront that terrible phenomenon!(less)

When you are a writer, you have to keep an open mind about people. You have to try to understand the minds of good people and not-so-good people. Writing is a way to not only express yourself, but also a creative platform to fictionally right some wrongs, change the world, and makes dreams come true. It’s quite a powerful, magical thing!(less)

YOU BE MOMMY

Good news, fellow readers and authors! YOU BE MOMMY has done so well that my publisher will be releasing a board book version for the little ones on March 30, 2021. It will be nice to have both versions from which to choose. I know my own kids loved the “feel” of a board book in their hands—so much easier for those little hands to turn the page!
