Recently my nine year old son, shoeless, went careening across our wooden floor as he dashed to get his shoes, backpack, and coat. We were late for the bus. "Why don't socks have brakes?" he asked. "That would be a big help."
I could ask that myself with all that has been going on. Getting ready for the holidays and all that that entails, winding up book events - I did nine in November,and I've been wishing too that life would slow down.
I spoke recently in front of about 90 girl scouts about my path to publication.
That's me, the little red speck, speaking to a very crowded room of girl scouts!
