Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a public school teacher and varsity high school soccer coach. This is my first book.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Incredible Adventures of Kinslee and Kallie: How to Build a Snowman. Our first inspiration was of course our two daughters, Kinslee and Kallie. Writing about their journey through life and the different adventures that they partake in will allow their childhood to live on even when they become adults.
The second big reason is, as public school educators, we understand how crucial it is for every child to not only read but, more importantly, to find joy in reading. our hope by creating The Incredible Adventures of Kinslee and Kallie: book series, every child will have a book they can enjoy! This is why we decided to do early childhood (Juvenile) children’s books. Finding love for reading early in a child’s life, will help them tremendously as they grow up.
