 I have published 10 books for children and adults. Here’s how I did it:

Writing has always come very naturally to me. So when I heard that a Honesdale Pennsylvania company was beginning a poetry imprint, I jumped at the chance to submit a manuscript.

It was 1991, and Wordsong, the poetry imprint of Boyds Mills Press, was just getting off of the ground. I met with some editors, and we decided that for my first book an anthology would be best. That meant that I would put together a collection of various poems on a theme.
