Big thrill!!!!  On October 10, 2009 Dragon Fire, Ocean Mist received the bronze medal in the Best First Chapter Book category of the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards!!  The awards ceremony was in Charleston, West Virginia at the West Virginia Book Festival.  It was a real thrill and very inspiring for me to be in the company of so many wonderful authors and illustrators.
