Huge thank you to everyone who came out this past Saturday to celebrate the release of my new picture book, Henry Finds His Word! Special thanks to Main Street Cupcakes and the Learned Owl Book Shop in Hudson, Ohio for hosting and selling books on my behalf. It was a truly wonderful event filled with books, cupcakes, crafts, and face painting. Check out the photos below courtesy of my step-dad, Mike Haley (thanks Mike!)
My husband Frank, the first to get his face painted.
He’s pretty awesome.

The Kessen Family. If you open a copy of Henry Finds His Word,
you’ll noticed it’s dedicated to Tyler.
I love that Tyler is wearing stripes in this picture just like Henry.
