Because of her dedication to literacy, she donates a portion of her royalties to organizations that support literacy efforts for children and adults.

Valerie lives in the midwestern United States, sharing her time betwee

Did you ever think what a dog might say, if he / she was capable of speaking? I know it has crossed my mind. This is a clever and amusing book that addresses that topic. I loved it.

Laura Ingalls Wilder
“Laura felt a warmth inside her. It was very small, but it was strong. It was steady, like a tiny light in the dark, and it burned very low but no winds could make it flicker because it would not give up.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder, The Long Winter

Vincent van Gogh
“Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.”
Vincent Van Gogh

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sonnets from the Portuguese

Anne Frank
“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”
Anne Frank

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“I bid the chords sweet music make,
And all must follow in my wake.”
