To Blog, or Not


Blog?  Blog about what?  Everyone loves a cooking blog, but my expertise doesn’t go beyond that of a few family recipes and HEB meal deals.  My husband has a knack for the culinary, and I’m perfectly fine with my cooking reputation, or lack there of.  Who says pouring cereal can’t be defined as cooking, right? 

So back to this blog thing.  Where do I spend most of my time?  Library, yes that’s it!  Daily reads and romps through the children’s book section with my newest little book lover.   And at home it’s still all about books. (Writing, editing, querying, and exploring the abyss of literary agents and publishing trends.)

Have I missed something?  Did you know I’ve read all the good children’s books at my local library? Really! I’ve skimmed between the bookends and passed on those ugly covered, too long, and too wordy reads.  How the heck did they get there anyway?  I wonder …

So there it is!  To find what really makes a writer, I bet the answers can be found on the pages. So I will expand my romp and read through the entire children’s section at my library.  How many books?  Not sure, but will take the challenge regardless…

Love the blog! Keep up the good work! I'll run a report and let you know exactly how many books we have in the Children's Section of the library.

Anyone want to play a guessing game? Like the jelly beans in the jar? That could be fun, right? How many books are in the children's area of the library. Winner gets a free copy of "Librarian on the Roof" from me personally.

Awesome, I just love guessing games! I’ll inquire with my little book critic. And yes, we checked out your book, Librarian on the Roof again… What a passion you have for books, and how lucky we are to have a ‘famous’ author here in Portland.

Great work indeed, you have great passion for writing and reading your books will help many families connect with children. So looking forward to reading your first book due for release in October. I will surely keep a look out for the book.

I'm looking forward to seeing children become part of Pixie's world through her books. To be able to write and open a world of magic and wonder for children is a dream come true. We are in the illustration phase now and hoping to have it out by late October or early November.

Happy Reading!

I have been telling my little girl about your book, about Pixie in particular, now she has already named her doll Pixie and she keeps asking "mummy please read the book for me" or "when is Pixie movie coming out, I want to watch it". She is in Pixie's wonder land already. So there's an idea Caroline, the kids will want a Pixie movie eventually.

I love your blog, one of a kind. Have always wondered what makes a children's literature writer and bingo, just found my answer from you. Keep up the good work.

Well, Pixie is not ready for Hollywood quite yet! I'm glad you are excited and she to is ready to share her story. This evening she's enjoying a snack of baked apples. YUM :-P What is your favorite reading snack?
