Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
Little Skink's Tail by South Milwaukee's own prolific author of children's books, Janet Halfmann, might join the likes of Goodnight Moon, Green Eggs and Ham and Where the Wild Things Are as a children's classic. Here's the news from Janet herself:
Little Skink's Tail is the featured FREE e-book all during February on Sylvan Dell Publishing's website. The free e-book is a prize for readers who voted Little Skink's Tail the Sylvan Dell book most likely to become a classic!
