I am excited to announce that RACE CAR DREAMS gets a companion book!


Last spring when my amazing agent, Jessica Sinsheimer, sold my picture book, RACE CAR DREAMS, an untitled Book Two was sold along with it. That untitled book is complete and now has a title. So without further ado, I am excited to announce that the follow-up book to RACE CAR DREAMS will be . . .


. . . BULLDOZER DREAMS!  I can’t wait to share this book with everyone in the Fall of 2017!!


And in case you’re wondering just what BULLDOZER DREAMS is about, here’s a blurb:


After a day of pushing, scooping, and clearing, a bulldozer shifts down his gears and prepares for bed. As he lifts his blade and his spotlights turn on, he rolls through the gate and heads to the Wiggle-and-Shake for a bath, the Sip-and-Slurp for a fill-up, and the Mighty-Reads Library for a bedtime story . . . and soon happy cheers fill his dreams as children swing, slide, and race on their new playground.





Kirkus Reviews RACE CAR DREAMS

Ask any writer and they’ll tell you that waiting on reviews for your book to come in is like holding your breath under water. Will they like it? Will they hate it? Will they give you a glowing review? Or rip it apart? In the world of book reviews, it’s very subjective and we just never know how it will turn out. So, when a great review comes in, it makes it that much sweeter. And when they refer to your picture book as clever, bouncy fun it puts a huge smile on your face.

I’m super excited to share this wonderful review for RACE CAR DREAMS from Kirkus. Happy reading!

One Year Later!

April 1st may be April Fools to most people, but not to this writer. April 1st is a special day for me!

Last year, my dream came true with the official sale of RACE CAR DREAMS to the fantastic house, Running Press Kids, by my amazing agent, Jessica Sinsheimer.

This year, I have a photo that my super awesome husband, Ricky took of me holding none other than that very same picture book that Jessica sold one year ago today! And alongside Race Car is his wrench in my other hand because every good Race Car needs his trusty wrench.:)
