What a great day! Today I accomplished another milestone on my journey as an author. I spoke at Career Day at the elementary school where I once taught, Lincoln Charter School.

The Student Support Manager, Jennifer Dugan, invited me to come and talk to the students about writing. I must admit I was nervous about the prospect and wondered if I was up to the task. Then I had an idea. I invited my friend, author and CEO of Year of the Book Publishing, Demi Stevens, to come with me. Well, that was a brilliant idea if I do say so myself.

We met with three groups of children and spent thirty minutes with each group. I told them about my journey as I’m about to publish my first children’s book and then read them the story. Since they seemed to enjoy The Greatest Aunt, (I even got applause), I promised to come back and share the finished product complete with illustrations this fall.

Then I introduced Demi Stevens. She shared more about the process of becoming a writer and getting published and then read her very own children’s books to them.  They really enjoyed Write Away and Roger, Roger.

I’m so glad I said yes to Jen Dugan’s invitation and look forward to visiting many more schools in the future.
