I edited a diabetes education guide that won a Writer's Digest first place award for self-published books (reference category). I have also written and edited numerous magazine articles on artists, business, farming, health, religion and other topics.
My own non-fiction book, How to Prepare Your Young Child for Success in School, is free on Smashwords. It's short and simple, but there may be a few surprises--like the possible link between excessive TV watching and autism, and a key to delaying symptoms of Alzheimer's.
But I love stories, too! When our children were little I was the story lady during the morning church service, and much later I volunteered to read stories at our local day care. And I taught English as a Second Language to adults for years with stories as a mainstay.
When our full-time ESL program closed, a new door opened into the community of Scissortown and other places in Storyland . . . the worlds I’m exploring with my grandchildren, Tommy and Tina.
Scissortown, my first ever picture book for children, was released in paperback last May. It is thje only picture book for children that I know of with a choice of inside back covers: faith-based or secular.
An enhanced e-book with audio narration and word-by-word highlighting is now available. This feature can be helpful to children who are learning to read, as it reinforces sound-symbol correlation while the children are enjoying the story.
Both the secular and faith-based versions of the paperback, regular e-book and enhanced e-book are available on my website, grandmasbookshelf.net.
