Multitasking Mom,

Author, Educator & Blogger

Balancing a professional career, raising teenagers, and a Maltipoo, while embracing the wild ride of life... this is my happy adventure.


Once upon a story...

Hi! I'm Vassi. I juggle a busy professional career, while raising two teenage daughters. If that wasn't chaotic enough, I added becoming a self-publishing author to my already lengthy 'to do' list. I love reading and crave quiet, which are both hard to achieve in my day of running a busy elementary school and living with teenage girls. I hope that by sharing my lived experiences you will find an idea to inspire, play or educate, the child within yourself or for the children in your life. Thank for joining me on this journey!

New Picture Book 

Kalianne dreams of owning a puppy. When her dream finally comes true, Kalianne realizes that there is more to owning a puppy than having his wet kisses melt her heart. With a little guidance from her mom and grandma, Kalianne learns that even puppy-sized mistakes can be forgiven.

Book Two in Story Swapping Series

Book Review

“Grab a quilt and snuggle up with Kalianne, her mom and two new family members for a tale of surprises and multigenerational traditions. Children will connect immediately with the story’s endearing characters, vibrant illustrations, and relatable emotional experiences.”
