Recent Events

A truly wonderful morning spent at the North Marin Community Services reading to a most vibrant class of Pre-K and Kindergarteners. They were so engaged and excited and it was thoroughly enjoyable to meet their teacher and learn more about the non-profit. Special thanks to Karen Strain @xoxojamaren for your generosity and support. When I left, one of the little girls gave me a big hug and said she loved me. Warmed my heart and expressed my mutual admiration. I wanted the book to have an impact on community support. I left with a smile and truly a sense of contributing. Thank you to all!!!

Special, special thanks to all who came to the reading at the Majestic View Park in Arvada, Colorado on September 10th. So grateful and appreciative of the support. It was very special to be back at the inspiration for the “magic tree”.

Fun morning on September 12th, at Porter Children’s Center in Denver with a book reading and activities. Happy to donate the book to their library. Gigi was happy and excited, as was I.

The Summer that it All Started Image

The Summer that Started it All…

Samuel And The Magic Tree tells the adventures of a grandmother and her two little grandchildren during their daily walks to the wonderful Majestic View Nature Center in the town of Arvada, Colorado. This sprawling “park” offers nature trails, wetland areas, and prairie ecosystems to explore. Only blocks away from the children’s home, it was a gift of discovery. Their little journeys ultimately offered opportunities for exploration, imagination, and very special moments of sharing and laughter…
