Seniors Sign, Too!

It was over a year ago I received a call from D'yann Elaine about my book My Monster Truck Goes Everywhere with Me. She loved it and shared an idea. I had one very similar during my studies at Madonna University. D'yann had a clear vision to make it happen. After over a year of hard work, I am thrilled to see Seniors Sign, Too! Release the first book in a series of twelve–Book #1 ASL Alphabet. Join the party to meet D'yann Elaine, Debbie Smith, the amazing illustrator team Filip Heyninck and his wife, Katrien Van Laere, and me!
Romeo Band's 10th Annual Craft and Vendor Show was terrific. First, they help you carry all your things to display! Then, Christmas Shoppers Delight. This was a fun event!
Four Corner's Diner is a beautiful family restaurant. Marty invited me to have a book signing at the restaurant for the Romeo Peach Festival. Well, there was a major inconvenience a week prior. They had a kitchen fire. But, no worries, the community gathered around with raffles and donations to help them get back on their feet and open. We put up tents, and a donation for every copy of My Monster Truck Goes Everywhere with Me - Illustrated in American Sign Language was made to support the diner.
This shop offered my book at their booth during the Armada Fair, Monster Truck Jam day at the fair is an exciting day. Boys and girls of all ages love to watch this event, myself included. Guests had the opportunity all day to hear My Monster Truck Goes Everywhere with Me - Illustrated in American Sign Language, read to them in the children's area. They also learned a few fun signs.
SCWBI Membership offers perks! Like an invitation to participate in the Ann Arbor Holiday Art Fair. This was an excellent opportunity to meet other local authors, talk to shoppers and share my passion for children's books!
Armada Fair 2021 - What an exciting time to share my book all week with children at the fair! I loved sharing the story and seeing the children learn new signs!
Multicultural Bookstore 2021 – I flew to California! Well, not exactly, but it was fun to join authors via Zoom and store patrons to share our books. It was at this event I learned with the guests that while my book is written for a reading level of 3-8 year-olds, this is appropriate for people of every age!
