Doesn't summer always seem to rush by quickly? It takes too long to arrive and then doesn't seem to stick around? I enjoyed mine visiting the beautiful Cancun and the gorgeous Breckenridge. This mountain town in the summer is as beautiful as it is in the winter.
Now here we are with our children off to school and our fall routines almost set. It feels good. With all that I have been keeping to my writing and reading! I recently read The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, Hunger by Roxane Gay and currently reading Solito by Javier Zamora.
I have some great news to share in the next few weeks! Stay tuned and be well!

I am so excited to see Hilwa's Gifts come to life with the amazingly talented illustrator Anait Semirdzhyan! Hilwa is a favorite tree to a bubbly and curious Ali who when visiting Palestine during the olive harvest learns all the gifts that she offers. It is an endearing story that includes the warmth between grandchildren and grandparents, care for the environment, and most of all the love of family and community. Please stop by often for more blog posts and tidbits on my writing journey.
