I am thrilled that you came to visit today! This website contains information about my writing endeavors,
both academic and creative. I invite you to browse the various pages to get to know more about me and my written work.
My author brand is “Evidence that Enkindles Joyful Living.”
I write academic textbooks, fiction for children, and poetry for children and adults. I have three textbooks
published, Early Childhood Education: Becoming a Professional, Careers in Child and Adolescent Development,
and Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum and Instruction. Two of my textbooks are co-authored, one is co-edited.
In terms of fiction for children, I have three books published. The first one was published in September, 2017. This is a picture book
for children of the approximate ages 5 to 8 years. It is titled LaDonna Plays Hoops. I also have a second picture
book. This book, LaDonna’s Easter in Paris, is also available. My third picture book released in April 2021.
It is Darlene’s Double Dutch Dreams.
