Book Launch

Book Launch, Canyon, Texas

No details are available yet, but I plan a book launch sometime around the end of July this summer.  The title is Ants in My Plants and it is a children's picture book.  My illustrator is Chris Johnson and he has created individual and whimsical ants to grace the story's pages. The story is one I wrote while in grad school at the University of Idaho.  I was taking a class in reading instruction and Dr. Lew Smith challenged us to write, illustrate and publish a book with patterned language.  The original title was The Gardeners and I did the illustrations myself, and put it together with Contac paper-covered cardboard covers, staples and craft tape.  Please understand that this was some years ago, before the internet. This year my sister encouraged me to actually publish the book and so I am nearly through that process.  What a learning curve! There will be more details to come about having ants in my plants.  Here's one illustration from the book:
