Do You Wonder About Wyatt? Second Graders Do


The last two weeks I’ve been visiting second grade classes and talking about writing a book. Students at this age are not shy about asking questions. Sometimes they ask questions I haven’t even considered. Here’s a few samples: How old is Wyatt? When is his birthday? Is there going to be another Wyatt book? Could you put a lot of the stories together and make a chapter book?

Then there is the interesting but irrelevant information: I have a friend named Wyatt or My room is messier than Wyatt’s room.

Overall though, I’m very impressed with the thoughtfulness and the creativity of the questions. I do believe there may be some future writers in our midst!

Wyatt Is Here!!!



What an amazing journey this has been! Publishing is definitely a different world and time has a different meaning to us all. After about five months of waiting for printing to occur, everything is finally completed and I have a box of shiny new books sitting in my office. It has been a thrill to share them with others. Just this week, I have begun reading the story in first grade classes and the reaction of the students is precious. They are amazed that I could actually get the words on the pages. Sometimes I am amazed at that as well.

You can order the book right here on this website by going to the products page!! Thank you Hayley, my virtual assistant and real daughter! You can also order the book on amazon.com or through the publisher, Outskirtspress.com. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed in any way and to all who have been so encouraging throughout the journey.
