Hello and welcome!

Thank you for visiting my web site. You’ll find information here about my books and visits to schools, libraries, and bookstores. You can even send me an email! Please check back often. I’ll keep updating and adding new things.


  • I visited schools and libraries in the Topeka, KS area in October of 2003. Any interested schools, libraries, bookstores, or community groups who would like to schedule a presentation should contact me or the Clarion publicity representative, Alayna Murphy, at (212) 420-5881.
  • I have added a few pictures of the real Aunt Minnie, her house, and some of the children.
  • Aunt Minnie McGranahan was selected by the Kansas Center for the Book to be read by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius at the 2003 Kansas Family Festival.
