On Writing

ffk-2

In 2015, due to my husband’s health, I had to give up writing for almost two years to care for him. He is doing well and now I’m able to return to my writing, which I have greatly missed. So when an author’s copy of a magazine arrived today, I’m taking it as a good sign.

One of the best sites

You can’t go wrong with Harold Underdown. I learn something every time I check his site.

Squirrel 1 WILD MAMMALS & KIDS BLOG

Good author to check out

I know I’ll learn a lot from this prolific children’s author. She’s written over 100 science books. I am a biologist, but I haven’t taken advantage of my background as much as I should. Time to correct that.

Due to life’s circumstances I haven’t posted as much as I should, but that is hopefully changing. Please visit my blog often as I bring information to children’s writers. This is my passion in life.

Writing for the Education Market

 I have been published in a few books and other publications for the children’s education market, but am far from being knowledgeable about this. For the expert on this subject, click on Evelyn Christensen’s link here.
