On May 20th, 2023, fellow author, Patricia Crumpler and I interacted with a wonderful crowd of children and their families at the Children's Book Festival, Knoxville, TN. World's Fair Park. 10- 3. While the weather threatened, there was no rain until shortly before the event ended.

I visited Frontier Elementary in northern Oklahoma, Friday, April 14th, where I interacted with different grades about several of my books!  It was a wonderful experience with kids from pre-K to 8th grade. I talked about Billy Bob Flybottom with the little ones. I read a brand new Billy Bob story to them. The 3rd through 6th were introduced to Realms of the Cat and First Realm and how the two books came about. In the two older grades we talked about fanfiction, and how it influenced my books, especially Moon Crusher.


My latest books:             

First Realm, the prequel to Realms of the Cat. And the Pacific Odyssey trilogy: Zorro and the Outward Journey, Zorro and the Forbidden Country, and Zorro and the Deadly Homecoming. You can find them on Amazon. My House of Dreams, was reprinted by Bold Venture Press.

Moon Crusher has four sequels, one in process of being critiqued. 

A religious historical novel, Long Journey Home (working title) has been critiqued and is being readied for submission.

New review:

Billy Bob Flybottom by Susan Kite is aimed at children aged 6-10 years old. This book was lovely and fun to read with beautiful illustrations throughout
I sat with my nephew who is 5 for many hours and he loved it. He was still talking about it several days later where I sat down with him again and went through it all again. We had many laughs going through it and I love to hear him laugh out loud! Christmas Stocking filler is going to be easy for me this year! lol.

"Billy Bob is as tough as a cedar tree and as strong as a team of mules. He can out-chop, out-plow and out-hoe anyone in the Appalachian Mountains."

When the tales of his incredible exploits travel to nearby Corn Pone Holler, bully Jimmy John Rockriler gets jealous. He wants to fight!

Billy Bob gets creative! and so did my nephew..........Brilliant book!!!
