Someone either said or wrote, “Life is a journey, not a destination”. A “Google search” linked me to a site that said it might be authored by Ralph Waldo Emerson, but more likely Aerosmith – who knew?
Over three decades spent with three year old children from 9 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday, ended this past June when I stopped teaching.
Now I am able to spend more time writing, and being a Mimi (the name I chose 6 years ago because I just knew I was too young to be called “Grandma”). I watch my youngest grandchild, 8 month old Leo, three days a week while my oldest daughter is teaching 3rd grade.
But back to my writing – I am continuing to write Sammy stories, circulating new manuscripts, starting a new publishing company, and working with two co-authors. The first is my middle daughter Shannan, and we have authored a book coming out this fall, The Watermelon in the Sukkah (KarBen).
My second writing partner is a friend of many years, David Titcher. We are working on amazing ideas for animated TV shows. We have “pitched” ideas to Executives at Disney, but so far, Hornsby & Ticker and Slimeballs haven’t made TV Guide, but we are keeping our ideas fresh and our optimism high.
David has a new TV movie coming for Valentine’s Day that I encourage you to put on your “record list” – BE MY VALENTINE starring William Baldwin and Natalie Brown is a Hallmark Channel Original World Premier February 9, 2013.
