Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I have "Wild & Wonderful," a 7 book rhyming series of tales about US and Aussie animals. These tell facts that are fun and educational.

"Rattlesnake Jam" is a rhyming romp with Gran, Pa, and the rattlers Gran loves to makes into jam. Great for boys or reluctant readers.

Three new books coming soon:
* Ruthie and the Hippo's Fat Behind (PB)
* Horatio Humble Beats the Big "D" (dyslexia) PB
* Taconi and Claude - Double Trouble, an MG adventure set in the Aussie Outback.

About These Book Covers

These are the covers of my 8 published rhyming picture books.
Click here for WHERE TO BUY:

RATTLESNAKE JAM - fun with Gran and Pa, as they argue over whether to make the rattlers Pa catches into jam or rattlesnake pie. Pa longs for rattler pie, but will Gran make it for him?


The above 7 books are a rhyming series that offers facts about animals from the US and Australia. Fun and educational!

Hi Margot,

I never received a reply from John Kremer. I thought, since he created this network, he would know the answer. I did hear from another member, who agreed with me, so...

Hi Margot,

When you go to send a message to all of your friends, there's a question at the bottom of the pop-up screen that asks if you want your message to go to your friends on this network. You should be sure to check that box, if you only want it to go to friends on Book Marketing Network.

I'm going to send this on to John Kremer for verification because I am certainly not an expert. Thanks for your comment.

This is Ruthie and the Hippo's Fat Behind - K.C. Snider illustrated.

Well, all the west coast authors and illustrators (like myself), who publish with G.A.P, are meeting on September 18th and 19th, here in Bend, Oregon, to get to know each other face-to-face, tour the area a little, and then do a huge book signing on the Sat afternoon at Barnes & Noble's bookstore. K.C. Snider, a well known artist and illustrator (lots of art prizes) will be our hostess over the two days. She did the cover of my next book, "Ruthie and the Hippo's Fat Behind," and it is so cute and appealing - especially that scene stealing hippo!! It is in my photos here.

Apart from that, I have 2 new picture books coming out next year, + a YA adventure for boys, set in the Aussie outback territory. And I still do a lot of manuscript critiques, and keep up my website and two blogs. My husband wants me to slow down and smell the roses - or at least smell something other than ink cartridges and manuscript paper.

Are you on Twitter and Facebook? I find they are worthwhile for promoting my books and critiquing services. There are so many social sites that it is hard to choose which ones work for you and which to let slide.

Hi Margot! I got a chuckle out of your message ... I'm always trying to find the right schedule and never seem to have any luck! :) As for my writing, I just wrote an article for Appleseeds, and a picture book that's being used for a back-to-school campaign. That was a lot of fun--certainly keeping busy! Can't wait to hear what projects you have up your sleeve! :)

All the best,

Hi Margot: Terrific to connect with you here. I've been a bit quite. But now that the girls are heading back to school on Sept 8th I plan on being more active. Have a great weekend!

Warm regards,
