    A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon, is one of my all time favorites! I also love books by Kevin Henkes.

    I have always loved books and reading! Since becoming a teacher, I have read hundreds of incredible books. I wanted to be apart of making magic happen for young kids, through words and illustrations.
  • How do you come up with stories?
    I have many merories from my childhood that I use to create stories. Almost everything I want to write about has happened in my life.
  • Why did you write The Color of Friendship?
    When I was in third grade, I went to a school where no one looked like me (except for my sister). I know exactly what it feels like to move to a new place and not fit in. I wanted to share my story with other children, so that they know it happens, and it's okay. Just be yourself!
  • Why are the characters in The Color of Friendship different colors?
    I chose to make the characters different colors because this way, the book is relatable to everyone, no matter what color your skin is!
  • When will I recieve my book?
    Books typically ship within 7-10 days after your order is placed.
