About Me:
I have written a series of children's stories called, The "Oodleville Adventures" and designed the characters into 10 rag dolls called "Oodle dolls." I am a great-grandmother of 4, grandmother of 13, and mother of 6 (one deceased). I am single (divorced) and live alone in an apartment complex in downtown Sacramento. My favorite things to do are listen to all types of music, write, network, and enjoy life in general.

Recently my partner and I were discussing possible stereotypical backlash now that our first “Oodleville” children’s book, The First Trip, has been published, and Bubba Oodle, our first character doll, is available.

The story is one of Bubba Oodle, the news reporter for the Oodleville News, and his arrival in "The Land Beyond" (our Earth) from his imaginary world of "Oodleville." There is also an introduction of the other "Oodles" and some of their adventures
