After a lifetime of raising kids and working, retirement has afforded me the time and especially the joy to pursue one of my favorite hobbies, writing. I originally wrote a cookbook for my family and then began exploring the ideas I dreamed about for children's books. Ultimately, my interest in writing children's books is a legacy for my future grandchildren. With each book I've written, the ideas flow almost as if they have been bottled up inside waiting to pour out. I hope you enjoy my joy in these books.
