About Me

Come visit us on PurpleUmpkin. Come have fun with words. Lots of fun. Here it is great to dream. Then dream some more. A theme here is that it wonderful to be different than your brother, sister, and friends. Come to meet the Murples and myself as we teach kindness, tolerance, love and understanding.

I was born and raised in a small town that was full of farms, apple orchards, and wonderful people. At night I would look at the stars, and sky and imagine what was out there. I have always loved looking at the stars. I wanted to explore and dream and write about that in a book. I remember my imagination as a child and wanted to share that with other children.

Finally I was able to do just that. It is in part my love and admiration for children. I wanted children to dream as they grow. I hope you read this and understand. Hope to all and enjoy your trip. Please write me and let me know how your trip was. For now you enjoy. Best always.
