“The most important thing to me is to teach the children, so that our culture never dies.”
—Blackhawk SanCarlos, Mohawk and Apache
My world is filled with magic - the magic of books; the magic that happens when we open our minds to the infinitesimal possibilities that words bring into our lives. Colorful characters, fantastic realms, raw emotions that make us laugh, cry and want to shout at the top of our lungs.
So grab a cup of tea and your coziest slippers, and step inside my world for a brand new adventure. Who do you want to be today?
