Why I write

Sometime in my twenties, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a book by Natalie Goldberg. Well, the book by Natalie Goldberg. Writing Down the Bones was the blueprint for me for learning to know how my mind works (as an author) .

Finding your voice takes a long time. I've been at it for 3 decades and I'm still at it. But it did help me realize what kind of author I want to be. I tried writing Science Fiction for adults for awhile before I settled upon writing for children .

Why Children's Books are Better

They're short

They're succinct

Like Poetry, they have to get to the heart of the matter, lyrically, but essentially

Like Poetry, they may not always hit their target directly, but they get to the heart of the matter.

Not only are children's books entertaining, informing, or persuading the reader,

But, when done write, they give the reader a glimpse of how the world could be with YOU in it.

I don't want to be a blogger. But I do want to have a blog.

What you will find on triple threat

  1. Teaching Ideas for Montessori

  2. Parents: You will find book reviews and other ideas of things you can do with children age 3-12.

  3. Authors: I'm not published yet. But I'm starting this website now so I have an audience for some of my writing practice and a platform for when I do publish that first Picture Book (PB) or Middle Grade Novel (MG).
