Thank you for coming by! I welcome you with a poem, inspired by one of my favorite words. Just try saying “petunia” aloud, and enjoy! What are your favorite words?
Petunia tune in to color and put petunias into the ground bright as sound the tune of petunias © Karin Fisher-Golton, 2015
I write picture books, early readers, children’s nonfiction, and poetry. You can read about how all this began at a very early age and more on the About Karin page.
I love taking everything from my understanding of what makes books for young people work to my knowledge of grammar details to edit children’s books and young adult books of all genres. You can learn about the ways I can help you make your manuscript even more of what you want it to be on my Editing Services page.
My musings on being a grown-up person who still has her sense of wonder are in
my Still in Awe Blog.
