Welcome to my blog!

Pull up a chair and get your favorite hot beverage: black tea, white tea, espresso, chai, cappucino etc. Today is the debut of my blog about the kidlit world. Let me begin by saying that despite the word "Cuppa"  in my blog title I'm not from Down Under, though I would love to visit there someday.

Also, I'm not an expert in the kidlit world. This is written from the perspective of a kidlit illustrator/writer who is freshly minted.

That being said, I hope to entertain, inform and otherwise engage my readers. If anything written here is worthy of comment, please feel free to drop me a note.


This is a recurring theme in my life. As a mom of feisty twins, I hear "no" quite often. My brain is overly occupied with how to "get people on board" any given situation. So, when it comes to my own resistance I find I'm just as petulant as a 9 year old (or maybe a two year old)! No, I don't want to do a blog! I don't care if everyone else is doing it!

And here I am, joining the fray. And why? Because I've convinced my 9 year old self that it's a way to become connected, become noticed (for better or worse), to participate and to show my level of commitment to this undertaking called "Kidlit".

As a compromise to my whiny self, this will be a once-a-week blog in the hopes that "less is more" and I don't run screaming from my happy kidlitcafe!
