No is not Never. It’s NOT NOW. Unfortunately, there will be many NO’s — but sometimes ‘no’ actually starts a conversation, or it could be mean no for now, but a ‘yes’ in the future.

As part of my interview series on the five things you need to know to become a great author, I had the pleasure of interviewing Nadine Haruni, the author of the Freeda the Frog™ children’s book series, which addresses various life issues or types of family situations. The first three books, all of which have received a Gold Mom’s Choice Award for excellence in the picture book category. addresses divorce, blended families of all kinds (step-families, & families of mixed race, religion, or ethnicity), & moving to a new school/ town, transitioning schools, and other life changes. The latest book, “Freeda The Frog Says Farewell to Her Fish,” addresses the loss of a pet or other loved one will be released on June 21, 2019.
