My first book award!



Hello my lovely friends! It seems like a lifetime since I posted. I've been very busy looking after my husband and daughter who spent a few days in the hospital. My husband was ill and my daughter had surgery. Not a great way to usher in the new year, but all is going well now so far. God is good!
 
Since I last posted, I've had the good fortune to win a Silver Medal Feathered Quill award for my book, Ladybug! Ladybug! It is so exciting winning your first award! I felt honored indeed. It could never have happened without my wonderful illustrator, Alexandra MacVean. She is so amazingly gifted. A big thank you goes out to her!
 
I have a new poetry book entitled, Reflections, that will be released in March. It's jam packed with many of my narrative poems and favorite picks alike. It was fun browsing through all of my older works and putting them together with newer ones to create this new book. I do hope my followers will enjoy it.
 
We've had a cold, wet winter here in Arizona, but it's beginning to warm a bit and we've been in the 70's for a few days now. Hoping it keeps up for a little while at least so I can enjoy a bit of the outdoors.
 
Blessings to you all!
 
~ Charlotte
