Mumbet and Charlie & Moon

This is a time for endings and beginnings.
Ann-Elizabeth Barnes and I are putting the finishing touches on "A Free Woman on God's Earth" The True Story of Elizabeth "Mumbet" Freeman, The Slave Who Won Her Freedom! Jackie Rogers has begun illustrating it and it's going to be beautiful. We are beyond excited about this project. Mumbet has become very dear to me. I admire her so much and cannot wait to bring her alive for children to read!

Martin Meader and I are also working crazily to get The Adventures of Charlie & Moon ready to go to press. The story just keeps getting better and better and so far, every kid who has been privileged enough to read it, has loved it wildly! I see great things for this book! I cannot wait to see it born.
