Back Home...

Monday, May 1, 2017, I had the honor to speak to the third graders at West Marion Elementary School for their special event,  "Author Day".  We met in the gymnasium and I spoke briefly about my journey in writing,  "My Days with Nell" and "Treasures of My Heart."  The students have been studying McDowell County History and I shared a small reading of my Carson House book, "Treasures of My Heart"  and how Stoneman's Raiders attacked the house nine days after the Civil War had ended.  We had a short question and answer time and the students were, as always, well behaved, courteous and kind.  West Marion is my home school.  It's where I developed a deep love for children's literature. I love the people there who give their time, talent and love to a diverse population of youngsters. They are encouragers and their generosity of spirit knows no boundaries.  I miss them; a part of them goes with me to every school I visit.  They are my standard... and they always end up on top.  A special thank you to Ms. Ashley Greene, meda coordinator, for the invitation.
