Welcome. Come in. Look Around
If you are a dreamer,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer . . .
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
"Invitation" by Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends
I may have been named after the girl who called everyone "Sir" in the iconic comic strip The Peanuts, but I relate more to Frieda who constantly reminded us
that she had "naturally curly hair".
Afterall, that is how I am most recognized.
In previous chapters I've been a teacher and a theatre educator, but now I split my days between chasing the Picture Book Writer dream and chasing toddlers on the playground as a nanny. Both are equally glamorous -- I assure you!
I enjoy reading, long distance running, watching baseball and eating ice cream -- not all at the same time! Although I never turn down a challenge.
I live with my husband--Lego Artist, Jonathan Lopes--and our mischievous sock monkey in Brooklyn, NYC.
