The day before Thanksgiving, 2008, I got a phone call from General Mills telling me I was the grand prize winner in the 2nd annual Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories New Author Contest!   Not only did I win a cash prize, but I was also offered a publishing contract with Simon & Schuster!

After years of writing, submitting, and getting nothing but rejections, this was a dream come true!  Thank you Cheerios, the judges and the editors at Simon & Schuster!

I want to add a big CONGRATULATIONS to the two runners-up in the contest:  Tameka Fryer Brown, for her story "I'm Not Eating That!," and Joan Stradling, for her story, "Who Invites a Pig to Dinner?" 

A mini version of 1 Zany Zoo was inside 2.2 million boxes of Cheerios in spring, 2010. 

How cool is that?

  1 Zany Zoo was nominated for the  
  2012-2013 South Carolina Picture  
  Book Award!  The winners will be  
  announced in Spring 2013.
