Hi, Sharon. Thanks for the invitation to connect here on JacketFlap. I believe we are connected on Facebook as well. Reading your profile, I see that we have much in common as former teachers and writers. Here is my blog if you would like to stop in for a visit. Have an awesome autumn! Bette

It's a lovely combination from a mum and son, and a contribution to the kids. But it is bad hard to read it as I am in China.

I love your artwork. Do you do freelance work?

Thank you for the invitation to get to know you, Sharon. I am sorry to be so late responding. Your book sounds delightful and I will be looking forward to reading it. I have seven grandchildren ranging in age from 17 to 4. They all read so I will not be reading the book to them. I love the illu... more

Comment by Carol Ekster on 2/3/2011 at 2:45 PM:
After I responded to your friend request I saw that you taught 35 years. I also taught 35 years before I retired....all of them as a 4th grade teacher. We have a lot in common. I love that through my writing I can still communicate with children.

Thanks Sharon for reaching out, and welcome to Jacket Flap.
Comment by Ron Dennis on 1/30/2011 at 8:33 AM:
Your book sounds wonderful, Sharron. I wish you all good fortune with it. I too am a late-in-life author and it's been a wonderful experience to read my book to young people and try to answer their questions afterwards.
Comment by monica devine on 1/29/2011 at 9:39 PM:
Sharon....thank you for your timely and thorough response to my questions; I will consider my options with a little more confidence today!
Comment by monica devine on 1/29/2011 at 4:30 PM:
Hello, and thank you. I have had 4 books published with traditional publishers, but would love to self-publish and/or e-book. Any thoughts? I have many interests & enjoy connecting with others...see monicadevine.blogspot.com

Comment by Anne Dearle on 1/28/2011 at 11:33 AM:
Hi Sharron. Thank you for inviting me to join you on Jacketflap. Like you I was a teacher. I taught young children and always found it very rewarding to start a new year with a class of children who could not read, and to end the year with most of them achieving a reasonable skill. Now I enjoy w... more

Congratulations of the publication of Upir and the Monster Gang!
Comment by Lisa Chaikin-Johnston on 1/19/2011 at 3:01 PM:
Beautiful illustrations! Best of luck with your upcoming publication. That's wonderful. I teach art after school and I agree that gazing into the faces of children engrossed in a story is mystical.

Hi Sharron. Nice to meet a fellow writer. I read your profile.I had a teacher who used to read novels to us after lunch. It was some of my favorite memories from elementary.
Comment by Jacqueline Bandel on 1/8/2011 at 12:28 PM:
Sharon, I wish that I had time to connect with the many wonderful persons on this website, but I simply do not, certainly not for now. I actually opted out of Jacket Flap some months ago. I, too, reveled in my years teaching poetry, which was my subject with many age groups (a "lecturing" teacher)... more
