Meet Lady Lucy, the Heroine of My New Children’s Book

On International Women’s Empowerment Day, I wanted you all to meet Lady Lucy! She’s the feisty heroine of my new children’s book, and she wants to become a Knight of the Round Table. Does she succeed? You bet she does!

The illustrations are by two amazing female high school students at Emma Willard School in Troy, NY. Click on the links below to see the cover image — these are talented artists. The book emphasizes the power of the possible that rests within us all. And, it is my hope that this books helps young girls and boys realize their potential with joy and pride. It was also an amazing educational collaborative project — with students, their teacher, their school and me. Interdisciplinary, engaged learning.

The book is available in both paperback and hardcover (limited numbered edition with Lucy’s sack and feather) and will be released on March 29, 2016. The books can be pre- ordered through Northshire Books in Manchester VT and Saratoga, NY at:
