Veteran Voices: Reckoning Online Event TODAY!

Warrior cultures of the past such as the Greeks, Romans, and Native Americans welcomed their military home in rituals of storytelling. Following in that tradition, Poetic Theater’s Veteran Voicesprogram seeks to revive these practices through creating an environment for veterans to share their stories, helping them to express those stories in a way that informs others, helping them recognize that their experiences do not define them and that they are universal and part of a long line of experiences from warriors throughout history and, to help them become comfortable sharing these works with others in an intimate but public setting.”

Children’s Book Review- Buckle Up: A Children’s Imaginary Journey About Self-Control by Stephanie Scott

Stephanie Scott has written a lovely book to teach children valuable lessons in self-control. In times such as now during the era of social-distancing, life can present all types of new challenges which are completely out of our control. Our normal daily routines have been replaced with new territory and stressors which make navigating our way through these new roads set forth of us extremely hard. Scott’s debut, Buckle Up: A Children’s Imaginary Journey About Self-Control provides kids and their parents the tools they need to master the bumpy road ahead. The book features Nini, a charming and wise little bird, who serves as the guide for the book’s readers through a delightful interactive and imaginary journey throughout the pages of the story. Nini encourages children to “buckle up” and tackle life’s obstacles with positive thinking all the while empowering them to practice self-control.

Bring Mommy’s Big, Red Monster Truck to Your School, Bookstore, Library or Venue!!!

I just want to thank each indie bookstore, Barnes and Noble, school, library and other venue that has allowed me to visit for story-time and author events.
It is so crucial for authors to receive this exposure and welcome. I have worked extremely hard to cultivate an educational, fun and engaging program.

I would be so grateful to anyone out there with a young child, grandchild or elementary school aged child who would like for me to visit their school, local bookstore, library or other family friendly venue to reach out to me or the venue and request me to visit!!!
This would help me so much and I would be forever in your debt— and THANKFUL.

Not Everyone Will Like You

Yep. It's true— at times, a hard pill to swallow.
Not everyone will like you. Not everyone will support you. Not everyone will applaud you.
Nope. It won't happen.
And it is perfectly okay.
You cannot make people like you.
You can be kind and courteous. Yet I afraid to stand up for yourself. 
Always strive to be supportive of others and applaud them, but remember the courtesy may not be returned in favor.
