Halito! (“Hello” in the Choctaw Language)

I illustrated children’s books for several years before I tried writing.
I found writing for children to be much harder than I ever imagined! After taking classes, attending conferences, and workshopping many different manuscripts, I finally felt ready to have others review my work. I’m glad I put in so much effort because now I’m ready!

A true pay-it-forward story that bridges two continents, 175 years, and two events in history that connect Ireland, Choctaw Nation, Navajo Ntion and the Hopi Nation.

I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the writing process.

Yakoke, (Thank you)
