Biography and Interview Questions

 

I am a historian with Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in history who has New York State teaching certifications in elementary, special education and educational supervision. I spent several years as a principal of a special education preschool and  a special education supervisor. Now that I am retired, I write biweekly historical articles for a local news magazine, but I also wanted to stay involved with children. So I married my love of teaching with history by using the Little Miss HISTORY character  to inspire children to learn about historical people and visit landmarks. I would like children to understand and appreciate our connections to our past history and its relevance to our future. At the same time, I want them to appreciate them as part of our heritage not a dull collection of facts. There are two challenges. The writer needs to make the text clear and concise. In my books, the pictures are really important in displaying the message as well as adding a level of humor and fun.

The Little Miss History character was created by my artist/husband. She is a younger version of myself; a peripatetic traveler with an interest in the past but always searching to investigate how these events will affect our future. I want children to enjoy history not as a collection of boring facts listed in a textbook, but as a dynamic adventure experience. The most difficult part of writing is getting the book published and to market. My husband is the person responsible for design, layout and printing preparation as well as conversion to digital format. I perform the research, marketing and social media functions.

 

Now that I have retired, I am free to schedule my time as I please. I would love to write my historical articles and Little Miss History Books all day long, but I need to spend a good chunk of my time marketing. That is not necessarily a bad thing, because I have met many wonderful authors and reading friends online. I still love reading and spend a good amount of time reading and reviewing family friendly books on my blog. You might say that I am definitely not into writing for the money, but rather for the satisfaction of providing a quality product that will teach children and adults as well as put a smile on their faces.
