I want to share my excitement about writing and reading with children. Some topics for my author talks include the process of how a book is created, breaking the myth of “but I am not creative,” writing poetry, and ways to develop characters and dialogue.
When Sarah Laughed was inspired by the sentence “Sarah laughed” in the Bible story about Abraham and Sarah. I felt there was more to the story of Sarah’s laughter than was suggested in the Bible. When Sarah Laughed is a light-hearted retelling that fills out the characters of Abraham and Sarah with warmth and humor and speaks to children in a language they can understand.
