I began academic writing in the mid-1980s. The ABC Book was my first book written for fun. Both my Madeline Island ABC Book and Madeline Island ABC Coloring Book are available at Woods Hall Gallery.
Since the field of reading instruction has been my career, I have always loved ABC books and was inspired by many of these creative books. The book is enhanced by illustrations by my Island friend Sally Parsons. My husband and I bought a cabin on Madeline Island in 1989. In 1996, we expanded
and renovated the cabin to make it our full-time residence. We spent 19 wonderful years on the Island until 2015 when we moved to Rochester, MN.
I’ve always been a fan of Woods Hall. Many of the gifts I’ve bought for friends and family have been from Woods Hall.
