  Author Talk at Spring Branch Elementary

Third graders at Spring Branch were great listeners this morning with some wonderful questions. We talked about how I became a writer, proofreading, and many other subjects dear to my heart. 

Right now they are hard a work writing non-fiction pieces. Hopefully, the visit gave them a little  inspiration and insight in to writing.

Young Authors' Conference at Fort Osage



March 10th Fort Osage had their annual Young Authors' Conference. The other guest authors were Doninda Nicholson, Steve Rideout, Ann Ingalls, and Priscilla Howe.  I was asked to talk to the 7th and 8th graders. What talented kids! Their stories were so original and varied. Each time I've talked at Fort Osage, I come away impressed by the talented writers as well as the wonderful staff who are behind the scenes of the conference.
