Hello and Happy Friday! I can’t believe that another month has come and gone. Are we already into the 5th month of the year? I’m still over here writing 2018 for the date!
I’ve kept quite busy over the past few weeks. I got to celebrate my sister-in-law’s beautiful marriage last week. She and her new husband are off to live in Brazil for the next few years as he finishes up his degree. Exciting times. I am a little bit jealous as I lived down there for a few years and I miss it terribly. I guess we’ll just have to go down and visit!
School is wrapping up both for my husband and for my daughter pretty soon. So that means that I am prepping to have them both home home 24/7. I love having everyone at home, but it usually takes me a little while to get accustomed to the total destruction–I mean changes–to my day-to-day schedule.
I plan on spending lots time outside at the beach, pool and park with the kiddos. This will save my sanity as well as give my husband a quiet house to get some major illustration gigs completed.
This week, I am sharing an article I wrote a few weeks ago for the Young Horror Blog of the Horror Writer’s Association. I wanted to celebrate some good creepy poetry for kids, and it was a lot of fun sharing with the horror writing community.

I am always on the lookout for spooky poetry collections. Do you have any recommendations that weren’t on my list? I’d love to check them out, so let me know in the comments.
