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.

Either way, it gave me the idea to take this picture my book, ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON and MOON’s FIRST FRIENDS, by Susanna Leonard Hill. A wonderful pair to celebrate the moon.

Sunset Views from the Sky Part One

When I fly, I always try to have a window seat. I usually sleep for part of the flight and it’s definitely the best place not to be disturbed. Looking out the window is the other reason, and the photos in this post validate my preference.
