Award-winning writer and character educator. That means I help kids (and the adults who live and work them) develop compassion, resilience and grit in a world that often shows itself to be suffering from empathy deficit disorder.

Anton Van Hi Annie, thank you so much for accepting my request. I am honored by you allowing me to interact with you and I hope that this would remain a mutually beneficial relationship. I wish you the absolute best for this year and I hope that your life would be filled with love, laughter and amazing accomplishments. Have a fantastic day. Anton. Amanda: More Than Any Woman


Arthur Hall Hello Annie.
Thank you for 'friending' me. I write spy stories and Sherlock Holmes pastiches, with the occasional foray into sci-fi and fantasy, so our genres are very different. Regardless, it is wonderful to hear from you as, I see from your photo, you love dogs as I do. In fact, I'd love to hear from you anytime here, or on Twitter or Facebook.


Mike C. Smith. Hi Annie
Thank you for friendship, if you want to know more about what we do check out beezeebooks.com
Wishing you every success.

Hi Robynn, Thank you for your interest in my work. You sound like the kind of grandmother every girl needs... someone who understands where she could use some support.

In friendship, Annie


Leonardo Ramirez Hi Annie!!
