After thirty years of observing and working directly with children and families I strive to direct the understanding I have gained into writing that will reach a larger audience. Parents (and teachers) today are eager for information and so connected and up to date. What may be missing for them is a way to translate that information into reality. Through my writing I hope to encourage an action-oriented outcome, with plenty of direction on how to achieve any hopes or dreams portrayed in the books they read with children.
