C*U*R*R*E*N*T*L*Y A Blog Hop of what I’m up to!

typorama (9)


Some of my fellow authors and blogger pals  and I are sharing our thoughts in the C*U*R*R*E*N*T*L*Y – Summer 2016 Blog Hop. I think it’s fun to take an inside peek at what people are up too, what they are thinking about, working on etc. So I jumped right on this blog hop. Please have a read and see what I’m CURRENTLY up to!  Then check out the other #Gr8Blogs listed at the end of this post for more  C*U*R*R*E*N*T*L*Y  reading material.

CURRENTLY Thinking About 

Oh gosh, there are a million things on my mind as of late! Here are the two things at the top of my list. DSC_0044My sonDutraMoonGoodreadsCoverLevi, who is almost 6 months old now. Where did the time go!?! I swear it feels like just yesterday I was bringing him home and getting to know this little person. My latest project. A STEM picture book from my new series Little Katie. The first book in this series: Little Katie Goes to the Moon!I’m thinking about all of the projects I have in store with this new book. How to engage young children, especially girls and get them interested in science, while still making it fun. Everyday I’m thinking about our son, and the new family that is blossoming right in front of my eyes.


As of late, the books I’m reading are mostly young picture and board books with my son. In my spare time (ha that can be a joke! Do you ever really have spare time as a new parent?) I have the Three Princes by Ramona Wheeler. So far I’m not in love with the book, but it’s still pretty early so that might change.  After I finish this one, I’m planning to start the next Andrea Camilleri book I have waiting for me, August Heat. Oh, and let’s not forget my food network magazines! 17910119


This time of year I tend to watch less TV as most of our shows are on break. The Flash, Arrow, Blind Spot, Elementary, Big Bang Theory, just to name a few. However, I do like to indulge in my guilty pleasures during the summer, reality TV. So right now is America’s Got Talent, Sister Wives, and My Big Fat Fabulous Life!2015-0407-AGT-Alternate-Image-1920x1080-UG

CURRENTLY Making me Happy 

Many things in life bring me pleasure and entertainment, nothing more right now than that of my little guy, Levi.

CURRENTLY Seeing in my camera lens

You guessed it, more baby pictures! What can I say, I’m a first time mom who is utterly in love!

    Can’t get enough of your baby pictures. How adorable is little Levi? Seems like just yesterday you were announcing the birth. Can’t believe he’s almost 6 months old. Best of luck with your children’s book. You have some exciting stuff going on right now – that’s for sure! Thanks for sharing!

    Wow 6 months already! Time flies does it not! So lovely to see you embrace the joys of motherhood, yes time and boredom cease to exist when they come along. Huge congrats on the book, sounds like many exciting things planned for it. All the best with it and here is to the best summer ever!

    You will have an extra busy summer with your cute new little helper, Carmela. I have not read either of the two books you mentioned and must look for them. Eager to see where Little Katie takes off to next after her lunar landing!

      Hi Cat! Thanks for popping over here. Andrea Camilleri is an Italian author, his work is a mix of mystery and humor. I only have one other author I enjoy as much as him and that is Stephanie Barron. The other one I mentioned I still cannot form an opinion yet, too early. Thanks for your comments of excitement for Little Katie, I hope you join us to see where her adventures take us! Who knows, maybe she will visit beaches of South Carolina?
