My imagination. Even as an adult I still daydream when I hear a carnival is coming to town or it snows for the first time. When I write these book you could say I'm try to recapture the thrill that I felt when I was young and life was so much more exciting.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It was so easy to get published. I created everything in MSWord and posted for free. (5 books in 3 days)
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love pairing my narrative with illustrations. I am so fortunate that my illustrators create masterpieces out of a simple one or two line description. I feel that creating a great relationship with your illustrator is key.
What are you working on next?
I intend to turn my picture books into color books. Before next winter I intend to create Christmas cards out of three books. I Wish It Would Snow, Alley Cat Christmas Catastrophe and Alaska Animal Crew Christmas Adventure. I'm also working on converting my picture books to Spanish, Chinese and other languages.

These sweet kitties are always in search of adventure and... trouble. Children will delight in the silly antics of the Alley Cats as they venture from game to game and ride to ride at this carnival. This 13 month blank calendar is great for children. Print and write in your special dates.
