I'm glad you're here! From the age of 7 or 8, I had an idea that one day I would travel the world, meet my brothers and sisters and spread the message of love. Which is why, first and foremost, I consider myself an "Ambassador of Love." As a child, I'd walk miles around my town singing Love Is In the Air, not much has changed! What I didn't know, was life would present me with a series of challenges, preparing me to fulfill on this mission, including losing all my hair at age 11 to a condition called Alopecia Areata. This is one lesson that helped teach me that our biggest challenges can become our biggest blessings! I also, lost a friend and gained an angel, in a car accident my best friend and I were in together. Donna reminds me to always "Keep Shining!" If you've got an autographed book, you know that's how I sign each and every one of them.
I believe we're all born with an innate genius and that a child's natural, creative ability develops best when they experience the power of love, acceptance, connection and appreciation. My intention, through my books and talks, is to nurture this genius, helping to expand what we believe possible for our children and ourselves. For me, the beauty of writing children’s books is that not only do I reach our young people, but also the parents, grandparents, teachers, preachers, aunts and uncles; my message is meant for everyone! I feel blessed that my books are read at bedtime, shared in classrooms and churches, given as gifts, available in great bookstores and galleries across the world!
