The magic of reading

“You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.”

I’m always happy to read something that opens my world to knowing people I wouldn’t necessarily meet in my own life. Yet I am also equally enchanted by characters who remind me of people I know well. Either way, it’s enriching.

The email I received last week from a publisher that said, I love your manuscript. I’m the mother of two and as soon as I started reading it, I could picture myself reading this to my children.” Β This is deeply gratifying and also makes me want to create a series of books about Aliana and her family.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
