We are so excited! Free-Falling for Freedom has won a Gold Medal!

We were humbled and honored--and of course THRILLED--
to learn that Free-Falling for Freedom received a Gold Medal this weekend in the Young Reader Nonfiction category of the 2015 Benjamin Franklin Awards! We always knew my dad was a good storyteller! What a privilege it is to share his stories with a new generation.

Lots to check out at the Gardendale (AL) Public Library!

Many thanks to the staff at Gardendale Public Library for inviting us to their Author Expo today, and several other events recently! It's so much fun to share the Rosie story with children and grown-ups! And we have loved connecting with other local authors at the Author Expos  - who knew there were so many in our own back yard!

We met some wonderful ladies
when we spoke for their Women's History Month presentation.

GranFran and I were THRILLED when these three special young ladies
visited our author table at Gardendale Library's Author Expo in November
(especially since they are my granddaughters)!
