Local Author Power

I was six year old when Martina, my neighbor came to drop off a book she’d written and illustrated with a few friends.  Martina was in her early twenties and she had babysat me a few times.  I loved the idea of knowing an author who actually lived close by and who I knew personally.

Winters were too cold and summers were too hot so we spent a lot of time cooped up inside Barnes and Noble.  I was living in Manhattan with my husband and our eldest son Adam.  Adam loved books as much as I, and so Barnes and Noble was our go-to spot.  It was above our local Whole Foods Market in Tribeca, so it became our routine to stop at both.
