A former teacher, mother of four and a grandmother of ten, and author of 6 award-winning children's books stressing good manners and consideration for others. (Once a teacher, always a teacher…) Her books have won a total of 28 awards in less than five years. She has been called "a modern day Dr. Seuss". All of her books are also part of a fundraiser for the anti-bullying campaign at imbullyfree.org. This site is http://sbpra.com/imbullyfree and 50% of the cost of her books goes directly to the imbullyfree organization. Manner-Man is now the Superhero for the Bully Bear kids!! All of her books are also part of another fund-raising effort at http://sbpra.com/curejm/ for the CureJM Foundation, to help find a cure for Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children's disease. Since many children with CureJM are also bullied, it is a win-win for both causes! She is also the author of seven published and internationally performed plays for elementary school children, which have been produced in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom as well as Australia, Austria, Botswana, Cambodia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, New Guinea, Philippines, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates (so far). Each year, she and her husband of 54 years travel from coast to coast in their RV, sharing her books along the way!
