U.S. children's author-poet David Harrison has penned nearly 80 books (about one-fifth which are children's poetry books). He is also the poet laureate of Drury University in Springfield, Missouri where he lives. (His term in this position was renewed in 2008).
Mr. Harrison hosts a blog called "Connecting the Dots" which is one of the four children's poetry blogs I read daily.
You can catch me today as the featured guest reader on his blog. He has posted my photograph along with my poem: "It Takes a Friend: A Poem for Two Voices".
Thank you again, David, for giving this emerging children's poet a chance to share her work with your blog readers.
