My first Children’s Rhyme book is in illustration which I am super excited about!. Keep an eye out for Super Max and the Math Menace coming your way in the next few months! The subject of this book covers Test Anxiety, which mentally cripples children (and some adults like me) every day. The students of Room 23 are presented with a pop quiz and aren’t sure they will conquer it. Max jumps in and helps save the day by reminding her classmates that they can overcome this math menace and be victorious.
When Maddy was in second grade, she struggled with test anxiety which prompted me to write this little rhyme. My hope for this book is to bring awareness to this subject and essentially help children and schools devise plans to help calm students before tests and assessments.
Have no fear, Super Max is here!
The concept of Group began in 2015 on the Metrolink. For you non Southern Californians, that the commuter train of SoCal. So, there I was enjoying the commute but wanted to fill my time better. Cue Group. It was the perfect time to utilize writing…so I did. I wrote every day and six weeks letter I has a ridiculously rough draft LOL. No joke, it was brutal. After a few years I decided to get busy with getting the book published, so I reached out to a developmental editor (those folks are miracle workers btw) and got the story strengthened. No idea what the heck I was doing after that, I little by little put pieces together until my book was a finished (and well edited) final product. I hope you enjoy reading it!
