Seven Facts About Me:
1). I was born and raised in the south, yet have lived in New England for over 30 years. I like to think that my southern hospitality and kindness combined with my newfound Yankee common sense about life has defined my character.
2). I was rarely read to as a child, which I find interesting since my biggest ‘shout-out’ to the world is the enormous difference reading aloud makes.
3). I have a terrific husband, two wonderful grown children (each on a different coast) and five wonderful grandchildren.
4). I love cookies, and I hate to cook.
5). I really play with and pay attention to my preschoolers. Really. It matters.
6). I wake up early and read, and do my ‘best’ writing at night.
7). I am a huge fan of YA books. I have my stack ready to read this summer.
Again, my thanks to Charles French at https://charlesfrenchonwordsreadingandwriting.wordpress.com
