This is Nathan. He is the main character from my book, Confessions of a 4th Grade Athlete. I am thankful to artist Corbin Hillam for bringing him to life. I tend to write a great deal for children, and really, it is that I always write what comes to me. I believe it is critical to motivate kids to read, not only to be literate, but to also fuel their imaginations. It seems even more important in our era of technology use. I am thankful for the opportunity to be able to use my imagination in maintaining my WordPress blog and to be able to read the wonderful work of so many other talented writers, see beautiful illustrations from creative artists and amazing photography from photographers. I hope everyone has a happy and productive 2016!
