What do you hope young kids (and adults, too) will get out of this book?  What’s next for you?

 I hope that young kids, and adults, will recognize the importance and value of friendship. I also hope to inspire kids to be creative, adventurous and excited about new friends as they grow and learn about one another.

 Friendships give children away to communicate with others, build self-esteem, and develop social skills.  Children with good friends have a sense of belonging and importance, someone to care about and provide confidence. Those special people in our lives can really impact our social growth and my book lets everyone know that there is always a way to stay in touch with our friends and loved ones.

 Growing up I had a very close group of friends who helped shape me into the person I am today.  We shared our deepest thoughts, wrote notes to each other and just connected.  I hope that kids will read my book and be motivated to stay connected to one another while also sharing the love of writing.  Often we struggle to express our feeling in words.  Pen

Pal Gals is a way for children to connected by writing and sending letters.  Watching my daughters send and receive mail to friends and family has been the most rewarding outcome of writing my book.  Their love for writing has developed into a passion to read and write more, something I hope all who read my book will enjoy.

 I’m excited to write my second book.  It will be based off of our annual family vacation to the snowy mountains where we ski, sled and create new friendships.
