This is a notice from a proud husband about his wife's latest literary achievement: Having published ten books for children and ten other books for adults on Amazon's Kindle, Lynn Schiffhorst today launched herself into the blogosphere with her own blog: starsandtails.blog.com.
Her blog, the work of someone generally reluctant to embrace the new technology, is actually called "Starshine and Cat Tails." She explains why in her initial post.
Lynn, whose poetry has been published in a 1989 book by the University of Florida Press, has been writing fiction for children for many years. Thanks to Kindle, her books of poems, Spoons on the Moon and The Green Road to the Stars, introduced readers to "quiet rhymes for quiet times" (ideal bedtime reading for kids). Since then, she has done several novels for older children (age 9-12) set in Denmark and a group of "feline detective novels" set in Manhattan, ideal for adults who are cat lovers.
There are also stories about a whimsical ghost named Giggle and several collections with holiday themes. The list can be seen on Amazon.
I am happy to have been part of this literary launch and equally happy to recommend her work to the wider world.
