Author Biography

I was born a ‘city-chick’ with a longing heart for the country. However, everything about me gravitated to doing and learning everything country style. I leaned on all the Ol’ Folk around me with a quick ear to hear how ‘it’ was done in the days gone by.
My writing days began when our family once moved too far from other family members and friends. Isolated, I began to write letters to ‘shut-ins’ and old friends if only to know what it would mean to them to receive a letter. I, of course, knew what it meant to me to receive one, being isolated in distance.
Eventually, we moved back to the populated city close to family. My love for writing continued to grow, so much so, that a real-estate salesman hired me to write scripts and narrate on the radio for houses to be sold. With the sale of one of those final houses (our own), we moved to the country. The country where my heart sings and my dreams are lived. This is where I write children’s books from actual life events that have taken place while living here with goats, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, and of course various ages and heights of the ‘two-leggers’ all on The Heart of the BottomsUp 2/3 Acre. Yes, I also continue to write to my beloved Ol’ ‘shut-ins’.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

My Keyboard Was Hi-Jacked! by Mammy Oaklee is a delightful story that children will enjoy reading. Mammy is a writer and she wakes up one morning, goes to her keyboard and finds a gargantuan spider crawling on her keyboard. Mammy did not know how to send her mails or blog or newsletter as she is horrified at seeing the spider. A keyboard is a writer's prized possession and it is tough for a writer to get the work done without the help of a keyboard. Mammy does not know who to go to for help. The book revolves around the daily fears that bother us and it has a lot of fun, humor and laughter with a surprise ending. It is exaggerated and funny with Pappy trying to get rid of the spider, but kids will thoroughly enjoy Mammy's adventures.

It is a good story book for children and the illustrations give movement and life to the scenes and characters. Pappy is funny and Mammy's fear is something we all can relate to. The story is still dramatic and parents can use it as a bedtime story book. It is a fun book for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries and it is a story that will make the kids laugh. Mammy and Pappy are lovable characters and kids will adore them and, of course, the spider who causes havoc one fine day by being on Mammy's keyboard. It is the type of story that both young and old alike will enjoy.
