A Blog Pivot

Since my day job is at an academic medical center, I thought I might change the flavor of this blog from children's writing to children's health and activities. This main focus pivot will align better with my daily thoughts and perhaps lend itself to posting more often. 

So... have you heard about the various healthy activities available for kids during the summer months? I spotted this extensive list and wanted to pass it along. The fun includes artistic, indoor/outdoor, exploration, local trips and more!

Let me know your favorites. I love biking/hiking, drawing/painting, and dreaming up new juice pops and smoothie flavors! - Q

The Problem with Piracy

So, it has come to my attention that Alphabet Puke: Monsters' Medicine A-Z has been pirated. Bummer. This creative brain child of much quiet longing and effort is just another free .pdf download on the internet without any remorse or thought for the rights of the author, illustrator or publisher. 

Copyright is important in this country. Other countries - not so much.

I write to share knowledge and stories, but also to buy clothes, food, internet service and all the other things literary pirates buy. Only now, I will be buying a lot less. Thanks for nothing. -Q
