InspirationI have always enjoyed reading books to my daughter,nieces and nephew when they were little. I am inspired by wonderful childrens authors like Marc Brown,Robert Munsch,Elizabeth Kann,Victoria Kann, Tommy Di Pola,and many others. My true inspiration in the creation of my own books has got to be my own daughter and life. I have watched my daughter and her friends interact over the years and I have developed stories from their shenanigans. Life always has "something" that inspires me.
