"The only thing constant in life is change!" Jekyll & Hyde's musical theatre production provides this quote and how true it is. Life is fragile at its very best. Cradle it in your arms and cherish each and every moment!


Background Information

Born and raised in Chicago and having met my husband after teaching several years, I learned that life does not wait for you. You have to find your path, dare to follow it, and believe in your passion. As an elementary school educator for 16 years with a Master's Degree Education, and sharing my life with all the childen who entered my room, I was ready to retire from teaching when I had my first of three children.As a child, my family moved around quite a bit and as an adult I continued to move. Learning how to start all over again and again and teaching my children the same philosophy I guess is what has influenced me the most. Linking my past with my present forced me to take a chance and try to fulfill the dream I had always had from my teaching days. Spending my time in the classroom with my kids writing and wanting to write children's books had never diminished.Here I am with 4 award-winning children's picture books: Circus Fever, I'm 5, Dear Master Dragon, and On Your Mark, Get, Set, Go! Encouraging engaging, and empowering the young reader for the sheer joy of reading, has grown into my mission of promoting literacy for children everywhere.
