Great Halloween Children's Books

I love children's books. (That probably goes without saying!) I recently wrote an article on some of my favorite children's books. You can read it here. Not all of the books on the list are 'Halloween-themed', but some are especially spooky and great for reading during October. When I taught fifth grade, my favorite book to read during October was The House on Hackman's Hill. Every chapter ended with a cliffhanger and every child in the class couldn't wait to read more. I originally heard about that book from Mrs. Brock, one of my co-workers at Knapp, and I have to say a huge thanks to her for introducing that story to me. It is one of my favorites ever!

Thanks for stopping by,

If you want to read an interesting article on transitioning from walking to running, go here. I wrote it for Associated Content, but to be completely honest, even though I can run just as easily as walk, sometimes I'd rather just walk. Especially when I'm surrounded by the colorful scenery of fall. Anyhow, the article is there for you to check out.

I'm off to type. Thanks for stopping by,

Online Articles and Queries

I titled my post Online Articles and Queries, because that's all I've been doing lately for writing. I can't submit manuscripts via hard copy, because my printer broke. Died. Kaput. One minute it was happy, the next minute it was not so happy. Since that is the case, I've written a few more articles for Associated Content. You can find one on Low Maintanence Landscaping, one about Fall Decorating & Color Choices, and one on The Benefits of Morning Workouts.

If you live in my neck of the woods, enjoy this cooler weather!
