Author Biography

First off, thank you for your interest in my writing. Without my fans, I wouldn't be able to do what I love. :o) I have always had an extensive imagination and am still a kid at heart today! In fact, I still get crazy excited and jump up and down with each new review I get on one of my books. This can sometimes drive my husband batty but hey, a review is a review - and as far as I'm concerned it is well worth whatever looks he may throw my way! Lol. ;0) At a very young age, in daycare actually, I was able to convince some of my classmates that I had traveled to Earth by way of an enormous bubblegum slide from an undiscovered candy-coated planet. At the time I had actually convinced myself that I was telling the truth so technically, I wasn't lying to the other kids at all. I am now 34 years old and although I no longer make up tall tales about where I came from, I do make sure my characters visit some interesting places and do some pretty silly things. My imagination is still far from tame! After experiencing a personal family tragedy-turned-miracle, I have decided to pursue my lifelong dream of writing for children on top of having my own photography business and juggling my three kids and their activities.

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Mortimer wasn’t sure about a monster the bird was telling him about, but Boo Woolly turned out to be a nice monster, taking him to a wonderful colorful place full of fun and candy. Mortimer really liked Boo Woolly and wanted to be his friend, but then Boo Woolly was kidnapped. Poor Mortimer, what do you think happened to him? Well, he was very sad and confused because he didn’t know what was going on. And you can read the whole of Mortimer's story in this wonderful book and find out just what happened to him.

What a wonderful and colorful book for any public, private or school library! This rhyming tale of friendship between Mortimer and Boo Woolly is full of yummy delicious food, including a chocolate commode; what a fun that is! Wouldn’t this do wonders for potty training! And I love the crayon coloring style of illustrations, going along with the carnival and candy theme, bringing the story more to life for children. I especially like that the young reader can relate to the coloring book style pictures colored with the crayons. Between the illustrations and the candy land theme, this book will surely captivate children of all ages. Well, to be honest, it captured my heart and attention, and I am far from being a child. And lastly, this book teaches small children that there are nice monsters like Boo Woolly and they don’t need to be afraid.

I highly recommend this book for all libraries and for children of all ages. It is a book they can’t go wrong with because it will surely become one of their favorite books.
