It feels like forever since I started the book that will be my next release – Flight School. But at last, the F&G's are here!!
I can't remember looking forward to the release of a book more than this little one! The idea for Flight School sparked when I learned dear friends were expecting their first child. Everyday, I wished for this little one to be born healthy and strong. But what I wished most for her was that she be blessed with a sense that life was full of wonder and dreams and that she could make any future she envisioned for herself come true. This story started as a prayer for her before she was even born. She'll be 2 when the book is out next spring, and I hope she loves the story!!
It's also an homage to teachers. I’ve had some remarkable teachers throughout my life, people who have cared enough to offer up their talent, wisdom and heart so that others, including me, could realize their dreams. Flight School is a thank you to anyone who works each day to help kids become the best they can be.
It always feels like a long wait after I finish a book until its release, but slowly the months on the calendar pass by. Now it feels like the release is coming up soon enough – next April. Still feels like a long time. But of course I'll stay busy working on painting and writing the next book.
