I am over the moon!!! Thank you to all of my friends and family for your support. Thank you to Francine Poppo Rich of Blue Marlin Publications for publishing my book and for choosing such talented illustrators. And a special "thank you" to Learning Magazine and their committee of teachers who selected Sofia's Stoop Story: 18th Street, Brooklyn!
My Uncle Frankie must be beaming. He told my cousin, Liz, shortly before he passed away, that I was going to make him famous. I certainly hope so!
