Brenda takes 'Cleveland' to school.

I made the rounds at several area schools before they dismissed for summer. Cleveland the Green Camel came out in April and I have been introducing him to the children. I am happy to say that Cleveland has been met with the same enthusiasm as Albert.                         
I am also pleased to announce that my photography is hanging on display at the Library Station in Springfield. Stop by and take a look. One of the photos won the Cliff Edom Photography contest at the recent Ozarks Writer's League conference.

Back to School

It was back to school for me today.  I read my new book to 7 classrooms.   I should have it memorized by now.

Cleveland the Green Camel

At last, Cleveland the Green Camel came out one week ago today. We endured windy weather at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Marshfield and had a good time. But the weather turned ugly on Sunday and Monday while I was at the Baker Creek Spring Festival near Mansfield.  Cleveland and I visited Halfway Elementary yesterday and have three schools to visit next week. I love visiting with the kids. Yesterday, one of the little girls said, "You interviewed my daddy."  Luckily I remembered him. That is one of the great things about also writing non-fiction. I never know when I'm going to run into one of my subjects.
