I’m honored to receive the Sunshine Blog Award (love this name!) from Penelope Anne Cole who blogs at http://penelopeannecole.blogspot.com. I met the wonderfully nice and talented Penelope through Guardian Angel Publishing, where she has her book, Magical Matthew, published, and I will have a picture book published titled, Maggie Mae, Detective Extraordinaire, and the Case of the Missing Cookies. (And I found out recently that the very talented Jack Foster will be illustrating it. SUPER YAY!)
