You only live once; might as well do it with a little bit of style and adventure!

Every child on Earth is a treasure to be cherished and celebrated!

Look for me at...

Hi, I'm Linda!  After spending three decades working in corporate America, I now have the time to pursue my true passion of creating children's stories.  I have always been a kid at heart, finding my greatest joy in solving puzzles, playing games, making my young nephews laugh uncontrollably and trying to find fun in any situation. I even taught myself to juggle. I am also a huge show tunes fan, with my favorites featured in movies such as Chitty Chitty BangBangWest Side Story and the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  Speaking of sweets, my favorite dessert is my mom's Red Velvet cake, and as you can see from the photos below, I enjoy all kinds of adventure sports like zip lining and skydiving. But most importantly, I have never met a piece of candy I did not like!
