Today I had the pleasure of speaking to 6 different groups of 7th graders at Royal Oak Middle School about being an author. I brought gig posters, CDs, magazine articles, post cards, bookmarks--and all things Mydols--and of course my memoir "Rock Star Mommy". I got to speak to each group for about 20 minutes and do a brief Q & A. The kids were so polite and well behaved. It was a joy.

Before I began speaking, one of my son's teachers pulled me aside and said that Willie keeps the class up-to-date with the various happenings concerning my book. I noticed postcards and bookmarkers on the bulletin board. The teacher explained to me that Willie glows whenever he talks about my book. I thought I was going to cry. It was a really happy moment for me.
