All authors suffer from OCS


You are probably wondering what OCS is. It’s a coined diagnosis my husband gave me a while back. It stands for Only Child Syndrome. OCS sufferers are used to getting their way. Without siblings to compete with, you ask for a new toy and get it, primarily because mom can afford one toy just not […]

A Whitaker Owl Poem


Blessed with talent – that’s how I feel, when I think ’bout what we’ve done is surreal. 10 books and counting – 11 on the way, I do what I love, what a wonderful day! So my illustrator, Leigh A. Klug is not only super talented with her ability to illustrate the most captivating faces she […]

I love to sing!

I love to sing!

No, you will never find me on American Idol or America’s Got Talent or any crazy singing show and probably not in the karaoke bar either, but I do love to sing. I sing in the shower. I sing in the car while driving. I sing at my desk and I sing at my church. […]

Square vs PayPal credit card processing
