I have had a love for children's books my entire life. My time spent educating children and being a mother introduced me to a world of imagination through talented authors and illustrators. A Tooth For Tilly is my first book, and I was blessed to be able to use my daughter, Megan, as the illustrator. My empathy goes out to all parents who have and are experiencing the journey of a teething infant. However, there is nothing sweeter than that adorable smile showing baby's first tooth.
