Author Biography

I am a mother of four and a grandmother of ten. I have written five published award-winning rhymed children’s stories, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, Santa’s Birthday Gift, The Magic Word, Gimme-Jimmy, and Manner-Man. I have also written six published rhymed musical plays for elementary school children. I love to write. My friends and family ask me if I think in rhyme and meter, and I have to admit that sometimes this is true! A former teacher, all of my books are in rhyme and all try to teach something like good manners and caring for others. I have had a varied career. I grew up in the Willard Hotel in Washington DC (my Dad was the manager) and lived in the DC area where I was a teacher and coach for ten years; and then became a professional newspaper sports photographer and columnist for several years. Later, I became a Dinner Theatre Company Stage Manager as well as a Talent Manager. Before I retired, I was a Business Administrator, handling payroll and contracts. My husband and I celebrated our 52nd wedding anniversary last June! We are now retired, and we travel in our RV from the east coast to the west coast each year to spend time with our children and grandchildren... sharing my books along the way!

Reviewed by Diane Carter for Readers' Favorite

This book is about a Rabbit named Peter. He whines and cries especially when he doesn't get his way. Peter is always complaining and whining when he thinks someone got more of something than he got.

When he gets too whiney, his mother always tells him to go take a nap or play with his toys. But one night Peter's mother gets very upset with his whining and sends him to his room. All of a sudden Peter finds himself in the woods and meets some little men who whine and cry like he does! What happens when he sees how they act up?

This is a cute "moral" story. It is written so younger children would enjoy and relate to it. It is very well illustrated.
