A BIT ABOUT ME
Hello, I'm author Misty Black. I'm a mother of three who secretly loves children's books more than my children do. Books are so full of imagination and adventure, and I love bringing those things into my children's lives.
My youngest has me read to her every day. We recently read about a Christmas elf that reports back to Santa the good and bad we do. She told my neighbor this, and my neighbor responded, "I don't have an elf. But I do have a mermaid swimming in my toilet."
My daughter looked at her, and in all seriousness said, "Um, that's gross!" She makes me laugh every day.
I'm going to share with you my first ever award winning poem I wrote in 5th grade. It's super silly, but it makes me and my kids laugh.
There once was a guy who was drunk.
His breath was so bad that it stunk.
He jumped in a well
So no one could tell,
And after awhile he sunk.
There you have it. That's the kind of talent you're dealing with here. I hope you can handle it. 😜
