Bakersfield Public School (YRDSB) – November 2015
Thank you Rhonda Woolfson for adding Words to your wonderful collection of books at Bakersfield Public School’s library. Thank you Laura Harrison and Ms. Niewiadomski’s for engaging your students with my Words. I was happy to answer your students question:
“What is the little dot inside the letter ‘e’?”
The dot in Little e is its eye; it’s what gives it its character. The eye helps breathe life into an otherwise simple letter and gives it a personality. (Just for fun, next time you speak to someone, notice where you first look to try and connect with them) 🙂
Oriole Park Junion Public School (TDSB) – September 2015
Thank you Steph Donovan for making Words a part of Oriole Park’s library collection. To Ms. Paradis’ Grade 5 class – I’m happy to know that Words inspired thoughtful discussions about the impact of Words. Thank you for your engagement!

Students have always been the inspiration behind my work. They are essentially who I write for. From the testy first draft to the very last revision, my loyal audience has always been around to give me their feedback.
And so, of course, it was a great honour to host my first Author Visits surrounded by those same welcoming smiles.
