About Me

I love the Ancient and Medieval Worlds! As a retired English teacher, I hope to inspire young readers to read more through my Quest Books. Please follow me on this adventure. Hook up with me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Goodreads, and Google.


Also please visit my other sites: Carpinello's Writing Pages where I interview childrens/MG/Tween/YA authors; and The Quest Books where I've teamed up with Fiona Ingram from South Africa and Wendy Leighton-Porter of England/France/Abu Dhabi to enable readers to find all of our Ancient and Medieval quest books in one place.

Absolutely one of my favorite pictures, even though my husband cut off the top of the Sphinx's head! That's what makes this unique and memorable.

This is the photo most people see of me. What they don't see is the background. This picture was taken during my trip of a lifetime. Below is the entire photo.
