Fun with Jill Osborne

About a week ago I had the pleasure of talking with Jill Osborne about my newest book, Angel Donor. When Angel Donor won the P&E Reader’s Poll, I had a giveaway to celebrate. Jill, a writer and a play therapist, won the book. I am thrilled that she will not only be able to enjoy the book herself, but she added it to her collection for play therapy. It warms my heart that the book will be doing what it was meant to – to help other children.

When Jill read the book, she was excited about it and wanted to do an interview with me. Head on over to her blog and check out what we discussed. Thank you again Jill for your support of Angel Donor.

Angel Donor Named Best Children’s Book in the Preditors and Editors Poll of 2012

January 17, 2013 –
Children’s author and Editor-in-Chief of My LightMagazine announced her third book, Angel Donor, came in first place for children’s books in the 2012 Preditors and Editors Reader’s Poll (P&E Poll). “I’ve been truly humbled by all the support the book received during the polling process,” Jennifer Gladen stated.  “I hope this recognition helps spread the word about the book, but more importantly the cause behind the book.”

Angel Donor, published by Guardian Angel Publishing and illustrated by Samantha Bell, is a picture book about a child in needof a liver transplant. It is inspired by her daughter who was born with liver disease and needed a transplant. “I wanted to create a book that children in the same situation can identify with,” Gladen said. “It had to be a book that explains what the children go through, but ends in hope. I often yearned for a book to read to my daughter when she had questions about her disease.”


When Angel Donor had been nominated for the 2012 P&E Poll, Gladen was thrilled. The poll is an Internet poll on books of all categories. It is designed to help authors gain exposure for their work and help readers discover the newest books out there. As taken from the P&E website, “As part of our overall effort to assist and promote writers, we are proud to present the annual Preditors and Editors Reader’s Poll”.  P&E is also well known for their vigilance in warning authors about publishing scams.
