"The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest men of past centuries."
While you’re drinking your second cup of coffee, she’s has already started her day as an elementary school counselor, and mom of two! Try that on for size! Spare time? What’s free time? Writing and reading, reading and writing!
American Military University alumni, with both a Bachelors, in Child and Family Development and Masters, School Counseling, she has her plate full! “Ryder the Biter” was written during her practicum in the perspective of the students. Opting to give voice to those real life moments, real life experiences, and real oh-no mishaps, birthed her first project with Ryder! Ryder is easily overstimulated when she has big emotions! What can we learn from Ryder? Do we know a Ryder? Ryder, is literally love at her first bite!
Her intention is to educate the readers with wit, charm, and resources!

Thank you for visiting Isabella's Bookstore, I am delighted you are here!
Opening this shop is a dream coming to life. An independent, community-based online shop filled with books, beautiful products from local artisans, and conversations with authors and neighbors is a convergence of all my favorite things. When you add my eight-year old son asking if he can help show other children where all the best kids’ books are, there you have it: my version of paradise.
Now, more than ever, communities like ours need safe spaces to gather for discussion and reflection. Neighbors should feel welcome and be encouraged to ask questions, share feelings, and get to know one another. Bookshops are wonderful places where the act of pulling a book off the shelf can spark a conversation that leads to authentic and meaningful connections. Bookshops are magical spots where children discover the characters that turn them into life-long readers and learners. These experiences cannot be downloaded.
