A Bit of Personal News

I began blogging in 2009. Since then, I've learned how much I enjoy writing. Blogging has given me a voice.
I began the Little House Companion blog seven months ago. During this time, I have been writing a book about the Little House books. My book will be a companion guide for children and will include historical context, activities, and questions to make the reader think deeper and connect with the Little House books.

If interested, please read more about my book idea at Little House Companion. You can support this in a variety of ways, even just reading the blog!

Thanks so much for your support!

  1. Would you consider the Little House books children's or for any age? We have the whole set and I considered reading them but didn't know if I was way out of the age range:)

    1. Great question. The Little House books are considered children's books when considered as a whole. The first four books, if I remember correctly, are really for children though all ages enjoy them. The next four books have teens in mind. LIW wrote the final book, The First Four Years, for adults, but it's still published with the set for children. I still enjoy reading the whole series to myself and to my children. :)

  2. How is it going with this project? I am so excited for you!

    1. Thanks for asking! It's a slow process, but I'm making headaway.

      I'm still seeking a publisher. Until I have one, I won't do much more writing because they often want to tweak and adjust the project to better fit their vision.
