Hi, it's Jennifer.

Hey ya'll. That's right, it's me Jennifer, first time children's author, kindness advocate, and lover of joy and all things happiness.

When I'm not working in the Technology field, trying new recipes, volunteering, or reading my favorite books, you can find me thinking of other ways to spread kindness every day and trying to help make the world a more caring and compassionate place.

Adalyn's Little Purse of Love & Kindness is my first book but I'm working on more exciting children's books so stay tuned!

Please reach out to me with any questions, comments, or if you want to chat more about my books.

Schedule a Live Reading & Presentation-Virtual or In-Person

If you are interested in scheduling a Live Reading by me of any of my books to your class, children, other kids events etc., schedule a time with me to discuss further and figure out all the details. Currently, these reading events are free if done virtually OR local to the Houston, Texas area or Omaha, Nebraska area.

Event would include the following:

  • Live reading of my book that is interactive and entertaining

  • Presentation on kindness, caring, and helping others

  • Q&A

  • Treats for the children such as cookies, fruit snacks, cupcakes, etc. This can be discussed and store bought to ensure safety.

  • Qty 3 signed copies of my paperback version to raffle off to children
    • If additional books are requested, please order them ahead of time through Barnes and Noble or let me know at least two weeks prior to your event. There will be a charge for these additional books.
