I am going to be an author! I am in the middle of writing a book on magic for kids; ages 6-9 yrs, 18,000 words, 100+ pages, illustrated.  The book will be published by Rockridge Press and available in August online and at local bookstores across the country.  Stay tuned for updates as the book takes shape through the creative process.

I’ve been creating video content: Here’s a routine that I created at home using my phone and video editing software.  www.vimeo.com/makephilappear/diversity

Thank you for your support.

The most important thing we should be spreading right now is optimism, positivity and support.  Negativity as Zero R.O.I.
