Girl Scouts Studio!!



I'm amazed and honored to be featured by the Girl Scouts of America this week as a featured author on Girl Scouts Studio, a showcase for inspiring storytellers of all kinds. I remember when I was a Brownie, wearing my neatly pressed little uniform. I was so impressed with myself when I got to wear it to school! I felt special and that I was part of something really important and I certainly was. The Girl Scouts is such a great organization. It empowers and inspires girls and promotes friendship and understanding, and what could be better than that? Were you a Girl Scout or a Boy Scout or part of a similar organization or club? If so, how did the experience influence you? For me, it made me stronger and more supportive of others--two things that have carried me through my life.


Please check out their interview with me and other authors HERE!

  2. I was both a Brownie and Girl Scout, as was my sister. I think it helped that our mother was a Girl Scout leader. The first time I ever went anywhere without my family was when I was 12 and spent two weeks at the Girl Scout camp in Puerto Rico. That was quite an experience.
