As a teacher, I thought you might want to know about the debut (last Monday) of The Picnic Basket where school and library professionals taste new and forthcoming children's books with first-come, first-serve sample copies of books for kids of all ages. We send free books. You tell us what y... more

Hi Sue,
You asked why I chose Ohio as the setting for my new novel, ITCH. It's funnny -- Ohio just "spoke" to me (much like the character did, I suppose) -- though I have family there, so that might have influenced my decision. I hope you get to read ITCH and that you enjoy it!

Ok, Your crazy? haha I will figure away to get people to like my books and even like what I have to say about life and how we should live it.

Yeah, I would hope that they do listen, but someone will and I hope it will spread either through the masses or slowly with individuals. i work as a janitor lets just say that I will leave my book behind in a pile of books once it is published in all the schools I go to. Janitor is a temp job. jus... more

The warm weather makes everything better although we had a cold snap recently that really made me think of Cleveland.
Comment by Carla Sarratt on 1/10/2008 at 10:33 AM:

I saw your comment in another profile that you are a Cleveland native. I am as well and attended Warrensville Heights Schools, but took my SAT and ACT tests at Shaker Hts. High School.
