Click to hear Chapter 1 from my book.

It was fun working with my husband in our sound studio to make this for promotional purposes. The introduction and closing will be used in coordination with a Powerpoint presentation at my larger school visits.

Hope you enjoy it!

Debut Weekend - Quest for the Dragon Stone

You've created a polished manuscript. You've toiled over the drafting board, and created some fine pieces of illustration. You've even managed to get your work published! Now the time has come to clean up the studio, put on your best smile and return to the outside world.

It's time to promote your masterpiece.

This has been an amazing weekend for me and my book. To read and see the response from my audience has been nothing short of incredible! Kids ranging from age 3-18, both boys & girls LOVED Quest for the Dragon Stone. They were interested in how I created the artwork and really engaged me in some interesting conversations. I had fun things to stimulate them visually and tactile artifacts for them to touch.

If this is considered work - pinch me now, I am dreaming.
Please enjoy the slides from my Magbeology Sessions. Stay tuned - there will be more to come......
