As a mother of two boys, I have many happy memories reading children's books to them when they were young. With my own love of drawing, my background in music, and seasoned career in songwriting, I guess it was inevitable that someday I would write a children’s book with music. Creating Poof A Puff of Wind was so rewarding, that I realized writing children’s books was what I wanted to continue doing.


Poof A Puff  Of  Wind, the first in a series with the second book available soon, provides a playful introduction to one of nature’s phenomena as well as a delightful story with a positive message for children. When Poof decides he wants to blow down to the ground to make a friend, he discovers that life has obstacles that can be overcome as long as you keep trying.


Poof A Puff  Of  Wind is accompanied by a CD which offers a totally original addition to a children’s book.  With accompaniment, the story is sung word for word, creating an opera-like musical of the book.  Singing along with the music is not only a fun musical experience for a child, but it also becomes a creative reading aid helping with word recognition. We have also made Poof available in DVD, which allows a child to view the book on screen while listening to the music as the pages turn.
