The Blurb

In Moon Mail and Star Kisses, a loving adult and child must be separated for a little while. The adult promises the child to send greetings and kisses through the night sky, shared no matter the distance of place or time apart. The moon, the stars, and a person’s love are bright and constant even when they cannot be seen.

The Inspiration

In the summer of 2012, my nieces came to spend the weekend at my home. As my sister left the house, she reminded them to look to the moon for her mail and to the stars for her kisses. In turn, the girls, then 7 and 5, promised to return moon mail and star kisses.

The concept ignited my imagination, and we thoroughly practiced sending mail and kisses all weekend (as I’ve done with my own three boys ever since). When my sister and her husband returned, I asked where she’d picked up the idea. She gave a quizzical look and told me that she made it up.

At that moment, I knew that moon mail and star kisses had to be a book. I researched the terms and ideas but found no matches. After writing the book, I shared it with my sister, who loved it and gave me her blessing.
