|Muffin looking for What's In The Corner?|
I write from my heart, and personal life experiences. My most recent book titled "What's In The Corner? A Muffin "Tail" is a musical, mystery for children. My Anatolian Shepherd, Muffin, is a wonderful inspiration! About two years ago, she started running to the corner of our backyard and barking at something lurking in the large, tree-like, bush. Anytime I would go to investigate, I saw nothing. I then started saying to Muffin, "what's in the corner?"; and she would run with wild abandon to the corner and give a quick bark. It became amusing to our family! And so, in Laura fashion, I started singing possibilities of what could be in that corner? The verses all contained things Muffin either adores or loves to chase! While one of her breed traits is protector/guard dog, I capitalized on that trait in the book as Muffin protects the backyard and me from "scary" things in the tree. You will have to read or listen to my awesome audio download (that is sure to sweep at the GRAMMY's next year) to find out what REALLY is in that CORNER! We did eventually find out and you can too!! I enjoy making kids think and try and figure out what is going on in my books. My books are interactive and I sometimes get caught up in watching children's expressions and hearing what they think is going on in the book. Each time I do a reading/singing it's a unique and wonderful experience for me and I hope for the children as well!
