TODAY!!! Today's 12-13-56! 'Cuz I'm 56!
That makes this my 'golden' birthday. 
For the mathematicians in our midst, I was born in 1956, so I've always considered 56 to be my lucky number. 
Therefore turning 56 makes today gold in my book.
I trumpet my age and am happy to tell you how long I've lived. 
In my world getting older is indeed something to celebrate!!!!
Let's celebrate together. I've got a give away for you!
But first.............

How awesome is that for a celebration?
A whole new spotlight for my work!

My LUV-of-reading was nurtured from the very beginning. 
**Be sure you have some time to prowl around through this AMAZING site while you're there -- you'll be so glad you did. 

Now. Back to the give away part of the show......
Here's an even earlier picture of little Debbie! 
Yup. My early life was all in black-n-white!

But as soon as I got to OZ the colors turned on 
and I haven't looked back since! 
To celebrate with you I'm giving away a set of my three picture books!
