From my list on that I couldn't put down.
Who am I?
When I was in third grade, I received a note from a boy that stated, “I like you. Terry.” I learned that just a few words were necessary to convey emotion and that every word in a story needs to have purpose. I earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Indiana University and remembered Terry’s note. These are my favorite books. They get to the point and take me on an adventure. I’ve studied them and written my debut novel in such fashion. In addition to my novel, I’ve published many non-fiction human interest stories, short prose, and poems. I credit any awards or recognition I have received to four words from Terry.
Deena's book list on that I couldn't put down
Why did Deena love this book?
Madeleine is a nine-year-old girl with big dreams to sing jazz at the Cat’s Pajamas, and she’ll let nothing stop her from attaining this goal. This book simply cannot be put down. As the time crept toward 2 A.M., the tension built. I laughed and I loved and rooted for Madeleine to make her debut.
