Hi, I'm Debbie Lodato. Thanks for stopping by my desk. My passion is writing for children. I write Appalachian folk tales, picture and board books. Illustration and art I enjoy as well. Pen & ink and watercolors are my mediums. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother. I run the volunteer program for one of the country's largest park systems. Playing tennis and taking yoga keeps me centered. Stop by my desk whenever you get the chance and see what's new. Do something fun and creative today!
