Once again, I have fantastic news that is really incredible.
I am ecstatic! Guess why!? During the time that I was home for the pandemic, I tried my hand, and entered several literary contests, hoping that I might win one – Well, the results from the 2020 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards division of Story Monsters, LLC., a worldwide book competition that “honors excellence in all types of literature and book marketing, recognizing creativity and hard work,” were emailed to me, and I discovered that my mother and I won in four categories, as described above.
I always knew that my mother was brilliant, but now this validates everything I ever hoped for, and of course for my own writings. I have worked so hard for so long to have my mother and her writings recognized and now this is all taking off. I wanted everyone to know about her, and now my dream is coming true, and for myself included!
All this is just settling in, for I am realizing that my mother and I won over possibly hundreds of entries WORLDWIDE! I am over the top! And, ALL THIS, in addition to MY winning the 2020 Best North Shore Author competition, which I achieved ALL ON MY OWN, and am now NUMBER ONE in my own right.
And, my 10 children’s books are just starting to come out – “Runaway,” by my mother and adapted by me that has just been released, “A Letter For Molly,” by my mother and adapted by me, and “Grandfather, by my mother and adapted by me. There are 6 Penelope books coming in the spring, along with one Julie book, ALL written by me!
