Having my books featured at the Parents Resources Fair today was a special joy. I got to interact with a lot of amazing children and parents. It was a special treat seeing a child’s eyes light up when they saw all the books and then widened when they learned I’d written them. My wife Heidi helped me though all aspects of the event. Our daughter Stephanie dropped by as well as friends Sue and Cole. Oh yeah, I also sold a bunch of books. Thank you everyone!
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
Well I am happy for you just saying
Thank you, Joanne.
I appreciate your compliment, Willow! Thank you!
what a wonderful event all around. one of the best days ever )
(Big Smile!) Thank you, Beth. It was certainly special for me. I hope it was for others who were there.
What a great looking table Russ, the kids had to have loved it. 🙂
Thank you, Colleen. It was easy to tell the readers and those who are often read to by their parent from those who hadn’t yet been bitten by the bookworm. The former focused on the books, and the others focused on free prizes (such as little finger puppets and writing pads with photos of animals on them) we gave away. Either way, I like to think that most went away from display at least as happy as they were when they arrived. Heidi and I also gave away hundreds of Clyde and Friends bookmarks. They’re bright and colorful so even non-readers happily took them.
That’s wonderful Russ. I have your book in my Christmas pile for the kids. I hope to read it (with them) the first time on Christmas. 🙂
What a great display you had… glad it went well Diane
Thank you, dear friend.
