We all have a story to tell; For me, I find pleasure and gratification in writing stories for children. Inspiration comes from things I see, an experience, a childhood memory. It starts with a feeling, a glimmer of what that story is about. The beginning, the end, and usually a somewhat hazy middle. Thoughts and images flow, images turn to words and words into pictures as the story begins to take shape. It certainly can be frustrating at times, it’s a process of writing and rewriting as you start to weave the parts together. A good editor is invaluable.

I grew up reading the classics: Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, The Golden Book of Fairy Tales. I hope you enjoy my stories that speak to fortitude, never giving up and happy endings.
