My newest book, Dare to Dream, will be released soon. It is a young adult book, also great for Middle Graders. I love the cover by Michelle
Kaitlin Thomas's best friend Melinda Vest is beautiful with skin the color of coffee ice cream. Tall for eleven, she walks with her shoulders thrown back like she owns the world and plans to become a model. Vanilla, plain, and shy, Kait doesn't have enough self-confidence to walk down the aisle in her own mother's wedding. Add an adorable, mod stepsister-to-be, who's also in the wedding, and the mix gets scarier. A pesky boy, Izzy Bean, taunts Kait into signing up at Star Modeling, where she gains poise. Then she wins a Dream Wedding for her mom and Vic Margola.
When Kaitlin Thomas finally overcomes her shyness, she's forced to do it in front of the whole world, but her best friend Melinda cheers her on as she finally dares to dream.
"Dare to Dream is full of wonderful characters and scenes that will appeal to a preteen who is full of worry about her appearance. Kaitlin's wish for curly hair and her conflicting feelings about being a wallflower will make a young reader feel right in tune with the story. Betty Jo Schuler has penned a novel for the middle-grade girl that will help build reading skills as well as self-confidence." ~ Angie Dobson
Heart Strings was a recent release. I call it my “heart transplant book.” It’s very touching with a bit of mystery and romance.

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and Irish or not, I’m sure a lot of you look forward to it as much as I do. My father’s side of the family was Irish and Daddy used to love celebrating the day. I still remember some of the Irish songs he taught me.
