A Great Moment

Since I started my journey as a writer more than four years ago, I've had some amazing moments. They've encompassed a plethora of emotions, from joy to sadness to frustration to celebration, and everything in between. However, without a doubt, one of the greatest moments of my career so far was an experience I had yesterday.


I had the absolute pleasure of Skyping with a 3rd grade class in South Dakota. The entire event was set up by a teacher, Sue Ann Clanton, who cares so deeply about her students that she goes above and beyond the call of duty to give them memorable experiences, like getting the chance to chat with an author whose books they've been reading. The eight AMAZING students in Ms. Clanton's class were smart, funny and oh so clever. I am honored to have met them and to have them as fans of my children's series The Adventures of Nikki Powergloves!


So thank you to Sue Ann Clanton, Braden, Sydnee, Sheridan, Rhett, Clancy, Claire, Slate, and Riggs! And congrats to Sydnee for winning a signed copy of Nikki Powergloves- A Hero is Born!
