“I wrote the first book, Unicorn Jazz to help parents and teachers have important conversations with children that include compassion and understanding and to help children realize they have the power to reach out. I also wrote it to help children who look or feel different, who might be teased at school (like I was) to get some kind of support. This is a story that has many lessons depending on your child’s age. Some top takeaways have been: “I am different and that’s awesome.” “We’re all different as human beings.” “We all thrive for friendship, kindness and love in our lives.”
