As one who has experienced the role of stepmother twice, I can assure you that it is a role one must give careful consideration. You are not only making a commitment to your partner, but also to his children. As a stepmother, I had always searched unsuccessfully for a children's book depicting stepfamilies in a positive way. Something to erase the indelible image of the "wicked" stepmother in the story Cinderella. I wanted them to have confirmation that not ALL stepmothers are mean and indifferent. Much to my dismay, I was never able to present them with anything tangible. And so, these frightened children were left to battle the situation with very little reassurance of a positive outcome. Finally, I decided to put teaching on the back burner and do something about this dilemma. I would write a childrens book on a subject I knew something about and felt that children, divorced singles with children, and stepparents desperately needed. My hope is that those who read The Not So Wicked Stepmother will come away with a positive attitude about stepfamilies, and some ideas about how to make them successful.About the Author:
