A First Time for Everything!



I have enjoyed so many amazingly wonderful FIRSTS since publishing Return of the Rose in March of 2011. It just doesn't stop. I am seriously grateful to every single reader who has picked up one of my books and then taken the time to let me know how much they enjoyed it.

Just a few days ago, I received an e-mail from Kaylee Beyea from Nebraska. She had to pick an American author to write a report about and do a speech in class and she picked ME!! She asked me a few questions about myself and, of course, I eagerly obliged. 

Kaylee read two of my books, Finding Kate Huntley and Taming Mad Max. She loved them both and she is going to share her report with me when she is finished with it. Kaylee is a Junior in High School and here is a picture of her classmates. Hopefully Kaylee will comment and let us know where she is in the picture.

Thank you, Kaylee!

Good morning, Kaylee! Thank you for letting us know. It's so much fun to get to see you. (waving)

This is definitely one of the coolest things that has happened to me so far in my writing journey.

Thanks a bunch and say hi to your classmates and teacher too!
