My Writing Update
Querying: The science behind skin color diversity has always interested me. After spending many years researching the topic, I am happy to say that I was able to gather enough information including the current scientific theory  to write a middle grade non-fiction illustrated book on the topic. All information is from authentic reputable sources.
Querying: Understanding the physical world we live in helps us take control and care for our planet. What better object to start research with than our very own Sun, a heavenly body that powers our Earth. I have put together fascinating facts about the Sun, the activities that take place in the core of the Sun and how life on Earth is possible only because of our Sun. I have written a middle grade non-fiction graphic book.

My current WIP is a middle grade novel about a boy and his father who don’t get along. Mom has to go on a work-related trip to a place where she cannot take her son. Just as Mom is leaving, the father learns that he has to go away too. There is no other option but for the father and son to travel together to a remote land. The story is about the challenges the main character faces.

Children are totally dependent on adults for the fulfillment of their needs especially during the early years of childhood. The dependency makes children vulnerable when supportive adults are not around. As children grow they find themselves facing issues on their own. They have to find solutions on their own. Story books and poetry books for kids have played an important role not just in entertaining children but also in helping them deal with childhood related challenges. Stories and poems help build character and independence.

I write stories and poems that support and empower children by validating childhood experiences, the joys and the challenges. I occasionally write for grown-ups.

NEW VERSION/Poems that Empower Children

Poems that Empower Children

A random collection of poems for ages 4-12 years that I have written over the years. The poems celebrate the joys of childhood such as getting caught in rain, consider the confusion when a child faces learning differences, speak about the heartache when children lose their anchors, talk about the fun and information that the world of reading provides and raise awareness of little matters such as following rules and being courteous – things that bring order and peace in life. I have written the poems from my heart for my own children, grandchildren and all children. Available as e-book, paper back and hard copy.

Poems That Empower Children is available at Amazon.com as a hardcover, paperback and an ebook. It is an anthology of poems I have written about matters that I consider important for children to know – matters I tried to make my children aware of. I want to share my thoughts and experiences with all children. The book has eight full length poems and a section with about 28 random rhymes. The poems range from the joys of getting soaked in rain to learning differences that impede children from reaching their potential.
Will appreciate a comment on the Amazon Book Review page.

…. an excerpt from the book, Poems That Empower Children

RAIN

… All around is pouring rain,
I hear the waters thump and slide,
the scent of wet earth beckons me,
oh, how I wish I were outside.

I close my eyes and float away,
feeling the drops come down on me.
With arms stretched out like upturned wings;
like a bird in the sky—I fly free.…

I SEE THINGS FROM WHERE I AM

I See Things From Where I Am is available on Amazon.com. Children who are aware from a very early age of differences in points of view, are more likely to build good relationships with other human beings. They are more likely to grow up to be tolerant and empathetic. The book builds upon this theme in humorous verse.  The poem is originally from my anthology of poems, Poems that Empower Children; howeverI considered it important to publish it as a separate book. The poem is a conversation between Jimmy and his father – a warm and humorous exchange that will delight both fathers and sons. The book is available as a paperback and as an ebook. I have kept the font large for the visually impaired. A comment on the Amazon book review page will be highly appreciated.
…An excerpt from the book, I See Things From Where I Am:

Jimmy:
The family dinner tonight will be absolutely boring.
Blah-blah-blah, ho, ho, ho, the entire table roaring.

Dad:
Tonight’s family dinner will be so very exciting.
Uncles, aunts, and cousins, all roaring, munching, biting!

Jimmy:
Dad and I see differently, but we’re okay with this.
I see things from where I am, he from where he is.
