My children’s book Different is Beautiful was profiled on Bette Steven’s wonderful blog; http://4writersandreaders.com/2014/06/11/meet-the-author-multi-talented-sherri-rabinowitz/

 Different Is Beautiful is a  book to teach children about the way of love. To teach them the opposite of that song. To teach them acceptance and understanding. So my book is beautiful, sweet and colorful but it also teaches them that everyone is beautiful. Everyone no matter, what they look like, how they act, who they worship and who they love. Part of the money from the sale of the book will go to an Anti Bullying group that will be disclosed as soon as it is possible. It is the only thing I could think of to help stop this. Love is the way. The beautiful pictures are by Anja Gruber and the text is by Sherri Rabinowitz (me).

Finding a Hidden Treasure in Your Files…

schrift 2_whiteBGDid you ever look at something,  see it in your handwriting but you don’t remember doing it? A little hidden treasure of your very own.  I just had that happen. I saw all my notes, scribbles and story but thought, “What is this about?”  After I read it, I remembered it,  but isn’t strange how the file system in the brain works? How can you labor on short story and then forget it? And it is a good story. So strange. Did that ever happen to you?

On Tuesday I chatted to the wonderful Terri Morgan about her book; Playing the Genetic Lottery. We had a very interesting talterri's book coverk terriabout why and how she wrote her first fictional book; Playing the Genetic Lottery.  As a reporter she interviewed Hillary Rodham  Clinton but the urge to write a fictional book about schizophrenia became her passion. It is all very diverse and very interesting. Her book provides an illuminating look at schizophrenia and how it impacts people and those who love them. Here is her website;  http://terrimorgan.net/ and please listen to our chat at; http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2013/07/09/chatting-with-sherri .
