What's your brand? What's your brand?
Everyone wants to know your BRAND.
It has taken me over 25 manuscripts to start to define my writing.
So keeping in mind that is ever a work in progress:
I write usually from life experience. It could be something that happens in my day or something in the news. It could be a great quote from Mr. Rogers.
With my educational background (early childhood), I would say 98% of my stories include educational elements that would support curriculum in the classroom and libraries.
So there it is so far.
I don't write just funny.
I don't write just lyrical.
traditional - sweet, supportive, inclusive
fiction with educational elements (STEM, common core)
Dark ( think The Hungry Lion because dark can be funny, too)
