The start of this school year has certainly gone good for me. Perhaps that's because I retired last June. I smile as the school buses drive by. I smile as I sit down in front of the computer and do the thing I love most: write. And hopefully, I will find more time to blog now.
I have spent all morning trying to find some good middle grade/chapter books. I have requested several at the public library that looked good: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, Bystander, Slob, Operation Redwood and Scat are among several that I asked for. If anyone has a good picture book or middle reader to share, I would be interested.

Independence/Fort Osage International Reading Association along with the School District of Independence had a wonderful program for young, aspiring authors. This year the featured author was Lisa Campbell Ernst. The students seemed to have a wonderful morning. I had a table to sell my books, there was a Scholastic Book Fair, Mid-Continent Public Library, and several other tables for the kids to enjoy.
