Have you ever been really sick and needed someone to take care of you?
In a letter about getting sick and feeling better, the second book in the Dear Calla Roo…Love, Savannah Blue series, Savannah Blue needs the help of her mom, Soodle, and the love and support of many others in order to recover from an illness so she can go out and play with her sisters in the woods and meadow again.
In 2000, I created the first book in what has become the children’s series Dear Calla Roo…Love, Savannah Blue. One summer when my sister Amy brought her eight-year-old daughter Calla Ruth to visit me in North Carolina, Calla and my Great Dane Savannah Blue became immediate friends. After Amy and Calla Ruth returned home to Maryland, I began writing letters to Calla in what I imagined to be Savannah Blue’s voice. Amy and Calla would read these letters together as though they were bedtime stories and eventually Amy urged me to do something creative with them. While I had never considered myself to be a writer before this project, I accepted the challenge of trying something new and have written and illustrated each book myself.
