A 4 Year Old Reads Tilda

I just received this feedback from Addison’s mom. You will love this feedback from my 4 year old – Addison. So, we laid down to read her Tilda Pinkerton book last night and we were only maybe two pages into it – she turns to me and says in very dramatic fashion – “Mommy, this […]

Little Tilda Pinkertons

There are few things a children’s book author loves more than children loving your book! My heart swelled when I got these pictures from Addison and Aidan’s mom. It was a perfect day to receive these too after I got back from a Quiet Owl meeting with elementary school teachers about the Teacher’s Edition of […]

10 Giveaway Winners

Last month Quiet Owl sent me a box of 10 copies of The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton to give away on GoodReads. I will admit I watched the number of people entering the GiveAway every day. I did. I was so excited when it reached 100 people. Then it kept climbing! By the end there […]

When Readers Begin Reading

As an author it is very exciting, nerve-wracking and often nail-biting watching your book be released into the world. You spend months and months and sometimes years pouring your heart into the pages. Then your editor trims your long winded words up and tells you to zip it. (I love my editor). Then the formatting and cover art […]

The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton ~ Book One

Somewhere out in the Sombrero Galaxy, Tilda Pinkerton–mystical maker of mysterious, magnificent, magical hats–is being hunted by the Keeper of Darkness. Yet Tilda simply does not recall, at all, after taking a tremendous fall. No one on Ooleeoo, where Tilda crash-landed, knows she is from another planet. Only Star Jumper Randy can tell her—but he’s […]

Do Woodchucks Wear Hats?

The first book in the series of Tilda Pinkerton’s Magical Hats is coming out this year! I’m so excited I could do a happy dance (even a #BloggersDance!). I’ve put my heart and soul into Tilda Pinkerton to create a series that is fun and informative to kids while being super helpful to teachers. I […]

Aaron Arachnophobia

Arachnophobia means the fear of spiders. Aaron Arachnophobia is a jumping spider who is afraid of himself! Arachnophobia is one of the many big words that you learn when reading the Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton series. They are the larger books (ranging from 300-350 pages) for slightly more advanced readers. The chapter books for K-3 […]
