“The most important thing to me is to teach the children, so that our culture never dies.”

                          — Blackhawk SanCarlos (Mohawk & Apache) 




Magic is real and my world is filled with it :  the  magic of books and  the magic that happens when we open our minds  to the infinitesimal possibilities when words come to life. 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 your favorite treat,  your coziest blanket, and step inside my world for a brand new adventure. Who will you become today?
