Teaching kids perseverance
Five years ago, I wrote my first picture book. I had no idea what I was doing. And five years and a whole slew of writing classes and critique groups later, I still have nothing published. Did I quit? No. Why? Because my father taught me "Kempers don't quit" -- and I want to pass that on.

Kate and Her Flock ... of Chickens?

Kate Gosselin

I am a big Kate Gosselin fan -- not because she is famous, but because I admire her strength, her commitment to her kids and her resilience. Yeah, I said it!
