I've been writing for children for over 15 years. In that time, I've learned a lot about not only writing for children of all ages, but also how to attract an agent's attention, wow children with fun school visit presentations, and even dabble in the e-publishing experience.
I have four nationally published picture books with more on the way. My picture books have made it into Scholastic Book Fairs, Scholastic Book Clubs, and have won awards. I like to not only write for the trade market but also write for the school and library market as well.
Although I have worked with many editors over the years, I still do suffer rejection and can commiserate with any fellow author trying to make it in this very volatile biz. If you can't handle someone rejecting your work, you should check out some other easy profession--like an air traffic controller or neurosurgeon or prosecuting attorney. Really!
My books include Princess Peepers, Princess Peepers Picks a Pet, Multiplying Menace, Multiplying Menace Divides and my newest title, Brianna Bright Ballerina Knight, will make its debut in 2017. It will be illustrated by Nickelodeon visual artist Liana Hee. I also have written a few easy readers and e-books. My work can be seen in magazines such as Highlights for Children and many others. I do at least 20 school visits per year and this option allows me to stay home and write most days.
