WOW! Today Karen Harmon and I shifted the ENTIRE non-fiction section. That is about 20,000 books that we moved about 1 row over. We did that to make room for the ever growing graphic novel section.

I also suggested that for shelves that held high interest topic, we add labels for easy perusing.
One of my life goals, bucket list items has been accomplished! I am a published, PAID author!! Someone paid me for a short story I wrote! It is, of course, a fantasy story. It is about a boy with Autism. Thing is though, having Autism doesn't mean what you think it means. You don't know the half of it! Read the story to find out.

What I mean by that is … Continue reading Who are librarians really?
This is a regular hangout for me at the Gladys Harrington Library. This is the library I grew up in. It looks completely different from when I was a kid though. I must say for the better. This place is elegant. It has a good blend of appeal for teens, artistic types, and for people … Continue reading Harrington Library
Here is an episode of Write Now Podcast which I found to be very helpful! Sarah Werner is one of my writing heroes! https://youtu.be/OcH9qTY2jsA I can't remember if I've posted my mission statement in progress, but I will eventually post a final mission statement. Be on the lookout for it.
When I am not reading, writing, teaching, studying, taking care of my son and husband, I sometimes like to paint. I'm still very amateurish but this one is significantly better than my last attempt at painting a person. I loved watching the Voyager stories all through high school. I particularly like the Janeway character. Last … Continue reading Kathryn Janeway Painting
