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!

Book Review

"This is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. It is both helpful and heart-warming, offering comfort to young readers who will at some point in their life deal with worries or anxiety.
Ollie Otter, the author's loveable and relatable main character, teaches children excellent techniques for dealing with worries through learning to conquer his own. The book's greatest value is the way it teaches children that they are not alone in their worries and that sharing them with others can help alleviate them. It will also encourage them to support others who are feeling scared by helping them find solutions to problems, just as Ollie's loved ones did for him.
In all, I highly recommend this book for young readers and think it will help them immensely as they navigate through life. It also features fun facts about otters at the back of the book, which is a lovely touch! I honestly can't wait to read more from this talented author!"
