Baseball fever in my house. Dodger play-offs, T-minus 3 days. Getting ready with Hanley Ramirez's autographed cleats. Name your best sports autograph. Is there a story behind how you got it?

Some people have been wondering if the "Roxy Rogers" character in my book is based on my daughter, Maddy. Take a look.

I love the honesty of kids when you ask them a question. The one I am posing in my author classroom visits since it is the topic of my book is:

What do you dream of being when you grow up? I will be posting some of the more unique answers in the coming weeks.

Today's awesome answer comes from a boy named Dylan: “I want to be a miner!”

What did (or do) YOU dream of doing? 

My answer is simple: Write children's books! Runner up: Play third base for the L.A. Dodgers!

I had my first classroom visit for my book, ROXY ROGERS: YOUR DESTINY IS CALLING today! It was so fun to read my book to the kids, watch their expressions as I read, and share stories about their own hopes & dreams for their futures. Shout out to Anne Siskin for being an awesome teacher and sister and inviting me to share my work with her third-graders! Can't wait to do more!
