Hilwa's Gifts Coming Spring 2025!
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.
It gives me great joy to write for children and reading to them is the cherry on top.
