Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.
~ Maria Montessori
Born on August 31, 1870: The Italian educator Maria Montessori initially trained as a doctor, which was nearly unheard of for women at the time. She later studied psychology and developed her theories of
early childhood education, which she put into practice with her Casa dei Bambini schools.
Montessori education continues to be popular around the world.
Happy New Year!
If you’re reading this, then you survived the holiday season. In Minnesota we had an unusual December. Warmer temps, rain, fog giving us a brown Christmas. As much as I miss having a white Christmas, I’ll welcome the warmer temps. I’m always cold. We did get an inch or two a day after Christmas.
I took time off from writing but things change here and now. I have a deadline for the next book, Up Close and Personal. The contract is signed and once again I will be working to a contract deadline. I’m very excited to share that you will get my next book in October 2015. Am I nervous? Nope. I’ve done this before and accomplished my goal. I’m feeling confident and optimistic.
I’m volunteering again for my writer’s group, Midwest Fiction Writers, as the webmistress and newsletter producer. I’m also producing a ‘newsletter’ for me and my fellow Minnesota romance authors to share all our new book releases and events with our followers. You never know, you might find yourself a new author to read. You can find a link to the ‘newsletter’ down on the right side of my home page. I will also share the link in my newsletters when I send them out to those who have subscribed. If you haven’t subscribed, you can do so at any time. If you sign up and decide I’m bothering your inbox too much, you can unsubscribe at any time.
