Hi everyone! I feel very honored to be a part of this blog. It champions many things I firmly believe in. Good friends. Good writing. Mothers striving to develop their talents while in the midst of their greatest work - that of nurturing children.
To introduce myself, I live in Henderson, Nevada with my husband and five children. I love hats, sandcastles, kites, Renaissance music, animated films (especially Pixar and Miyazaki), and literature for young readers. My favorite authors include Eloise McGraw, Susan Cooper, Natalie Babbitt, Christopher Paul Curtis, Lois Lowry, Linda Sue Park, Richard Peck, Megan Whelan Turner, Louis Sachar, Mark Twain, Victor Hugo, and many others. In a few weeks, I plan to start looking for a literary agent to represent my post-apocalyptic novel, Earthcrosser, which I have been working on since summer 2008.
Thanks for having me! I look forward to sharing our thoughts with each other as we all work to be the best moms and the best writers we can be!
