How to Eat Breakfast

I’m excited to announce my first picture book How to Eat Breakfast has just been published by Lyric Power Publishing, which offers “delightful children’s books designed to make learning about science fun.”

The book begins as her mother sets down a plate of pancakes for Wanda and says, “Now eat them while they’re still hot.” But Wanda would not. She just sat and stared at her feet dreaming of other ways to eat. So begins Wanda’s imaginary adventures in watching how animals eat.  

I am fortunate to have teamed up with talented illustrator Diane Ronning who brought my words to life on the page. Watch her video here to see a sample of her magic  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJgLF9gbbpA
Our book is now available from Amazon   https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CWJ8FNH?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860
Stay safe and be well, everyone.Cheers,

A Re-imagined America

As we celebrate this day of our national birth, let us re-imagine the country we claimed to be and the country we need to be. I can think of no better anthem to America than this poem “I, Too” by Langston Hughes. Let it ring out across the land!

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.
