Hello and Happy Holiday Season! It’s been a wonderful autumn here in upstate New York. I’ve been able to work on many different projects on topics from historical figures to music trivia to smartphones to rainbows. So for me as a writer, it has been fascinating to learn lots about so many topics.

I  just got my first glimpse of the cover of my Australia book coming out next month. Having lived there for two years, this project was a labor of love and made me nostalgic for the people and places of this incredible continent. The book is geared for elementary aged readers and covers topics including sports, food, animals, and much more. Here’s a sneak peak at the cover:


And in case you want to see any pictures from my Australia days, here are a few:
