Can a cat play music at a school concert? Little Honker can and did. First he plays a duet and then the bells with the rest of the band. When the bells get loose, the kitty inside him takes over and the excitement begins as Little Honker chases them around the auditorium. Did Little Honker ruin the concert or make it the most memorable one ever?
When my first Siamese cat gave birth to six kittens on my bed, my appreciation for differences and the love of cats started. Cats and students have been a big part of my life for fifty years. Creative Writing was among the high school English courses I taught over my forty years in the classroom. I always wrote with my students. It provided me with knowledge of the assignment and led me down my own path of discovery. After retirement I was able to follow my passion of writing for young readers. I enjoy reading my books in elementary school classrooms and talking to my audience. They always provide me with amazing ideas and I have been able to use some of them to create new stories. I live in Colorado with my husband and one senior cat. I also enjoy being an active grandmother.
Closed doors can lead to new avenues. Looking through my rear view mirror, I'm thankful that my first publishing company closed its doors and left me out in the cold. Although I was initially angry and felt lost for months, with the encouragement from my husband, relatives, and friends, I found Gaspar Sabater and Bublish to assist me in my mission to provide young readers with stories that are entertaining and educational. I'm so thankful for all of my beta readers who have given me invaluable suggestions that made all of my Little Honker stories, Margie, and Schrinkler books that young readers embrace. My appreciation for everyone has made my heart full! Thank you all so much.
