Ode to Revision

A Royally Rotten Red Day, a children's story I conceived and first wrote ten years ago and has been revised, and revised and revised, is now published in Spread Your Wings by knowonder!  I've always loved this story about a mother and daughter both having one of those days!

- a collection of 
Princess and Dragon stories -

Spread Your Wings, written by professional children’s authors from around the world, is a collection of original Princess and Dragon stories that will inspire and delight both you and your child. Adventures, love, mysteries, magic, and more wait for you in this exciting collection of timeless treasures.

Designed to be read aloud to children of all ages, these stories teach and instill a love of reading - the most important aspect in developing literacy - as well as create many magical moments spent together in each other’s arms.

Here's the Blurb:

A Royally Rotten Red Day: a stressed out Princess is having a royally rotten day, and so is her mother, the Queen, causing the sun in the kingdom to turn from a sunny yellow to a deep dark red.  At the launching of the Royal Navy's newest ship, a soaking catastrophe alerts the Queen and Princess to the problem and together they wiggle, snort and stomp away the red. 


  1. Nice to share page time with you in another of knowonder's collections, Suzanne. Congrats on the publication. I'm really enjoying the variety of stories in this collection.

  2. Thanks so much for visiting my blog Kai and I am thrilled to be included in the knowonder! collections with YOU! I have to agree there are a wonderful variety of stories in each anthology.

  3. I love this story and can SO identify with the mother-daughter duo! Can't wait 'til my copy gets here!

    Such good quality stories for kids. If I were still teaching, I would read these to my students. Now I can read them to my granddaughter!
