***Here I am at Stanislaus County Library’s Local Author Fair September 24, 2016.***  I signed so many books and met lots of great families!  Please be sure to become a member of your local library.  Libraries really are the heartbeat of many communities and provide so many services for the members of the community as well.

The local paper, the Modesto Bee, also ran a story about the event.  Check it out!

This was such a fun event. I always enjoy meeting with the children and just being around families.  I met some awesome fellow authors as well. I was a featured author asked to give a “Spotlight Talk” on Saturday and the turnout was great.  I really appreciate all of the support that families are giving Joseph’s Journey. Thank you!  To see a YouTube video of my Spotlight Talk, scroll further down this page.
