Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am the mother of three (2 girls and a boy), and the grandmother of 4 wonderful grand kids, and one greatgrandson. I am an Aussie transplant, and have lived in Oregon with my husband and family for many years.

I am a children's author. My 15th children's book is now published.YEA!! I love writing in rhyme, because boys and reluctant readers are HOOKED easier by rhyming stories. My stint as a teacher's aid taught me this. Reading is a magic carpet ride to wonderful places, and kids who love reading have a distinct advantage in school and in life.

I use SKYPE to fly my Magic Carpet of Books into schools and libraries worldwide. It is a great way to get kids interested in reading and writing.

I also run a Manuscript Critique Service for aspiring writers, and my website is full of helpful writing advice. Being a Mom is one of the most important jobs a woman can have. Our children always need someone to love them, be there to pick up the pieces, and teach them that knowing the rules of "cause and effect" can make life much happier.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I love writing my books, and hope my blog and website help kids and parents find and enjoy reading them. My son was a reluctant reader, so I try to write books that will HOOK KIDS on READING.
I want my website and blogs to help parents and teachers find the right books for their classes, and their children. And hearing from a child reader, or that a writer I helped had their book published, is a huge thrill. It means all the time I spent writing the book or helping the client, was well worth it.
I have been blogging since...
Blogging several years. My Website has been up for about 8 years.

Margot,

Thanks for visiting http://3girlsblogging.com.

We had a few glitches with our site.  I'll be loading quite a bit tonight.  You can register to follow us via our weekly column or you can follow us on twitter, fb, and youtube (coming soon).  Look for the f, t, > in the black toolbar just above the community box. Needless to say, I love your site.  As a bookworm, myself, I have always encouraged my children to read.  You have a lot of great books that I would like to promote on 3GB.  Let's talk when you can.
