I'm a Hawaii-based author, mother, home educator, sometimes rebel and commenter on LiveJournal. I got tired of being anonymous when I commented even though I have other blogs, so now I have one here, too!

If you're really persistent, you can find the blogs where I actually post here (where I ramble about homeschooling, book publishing and island life) and here (where I post about creativity, leadership, and occasionally, toilets).

My official author website is here and my books look like this:

Kids are funny. Being a book author is NOT very impressive to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. However, having your NAME on the cover of a book is decidedly more impressive.

Here are just a few of the questions I was asked today:

- Do you know what was Shakespeare’s first book? (asked by a very serious student who was slightly disappointed that I didn’t know the answer)

- How did they make jewelry during ancient times? (asked by a group of four very hip, bejeweled girls)

- Are you … famous?

- Do you know where the free bags are?

- Do you have anything I can have?

Note to self: next time bring either free stuff, ride in on a fire truck, or bring a dog like to police department did.

Today is Tell an Author You Care Day. Emily Beeson from Whimsy had an author experience that led her to create this one-day event. Emily says that you can:

“1. Write a letter or email to a favorite author. I think JK Rowling and Stephenie Meyer receive plenty of fan letters. Think of an author you love that may need a little boost.

2. Write a positive review on Amazon and, if you want to, link to it in your blog.

3. Buy a book by a favorite author and give it to someone who will enjoy it.

4. Profile an author in your blog. I’m not talking just another review. Tell us a little about the author and mention at least one of his/her books that you love.”
