Books for the Family
A little girl named Journey is an only child and she loves everything about it! In this sweet little book, she describes everything she gets to do as Just us Three. “We have SO much fun when we go where I choose. A park, museum, or a store to buy new shoes.” This book was written for small families with “onlies”, aged 2-6, and demonstrates the wonderful benefits of a triangle family.
My next three projects are a continuance of a series written from an only child's perspective and include emotional topics that parents of "onlies" may encounter. I can't wait to share!

About the Author
I consider myself to be a very ambitious person. Early in life, my career goals were my main priority. My professional portfolio consists of over 20 years of industry experience in sales and marketing. I also have over ten years of experience in education, consulting, training, and management. I earned a BFA in Fashion Marketing/Design and an MBA in Marketing. I decided to pursue a career in education after I realized my desire to mentor high school students, so I earned a Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Curriculum/Instruction. Today, I am a full-time high school business teacher and own two small businesses.
After I found love and felt that I had achieved my career aspirations, I wanted to pursue a major milestone in life - have a baby. I had a beautiful baby girl whom I adore! After experiencing pregnancy and struggles with anxiety, I made the decision to not have another child. There are days when I look at my little girl and wonder if she will resent me for making the decision to not give her a sibling. Although I have those moments, I know it was the right decision for my family. I named my daughter Journey to mark my journey to motherhood. The anchor in my logo symbolizes hope, resilience, and stability which is what I feel when I look at her.
As a proud parent of an 'only' it was a challenge to find books for my daughter that told stories from an only child's persepctive, which is why I felt the need to write. My life, family, and friends truly inspire my book topics. I hope you enjoy!
