Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
South Milwaukee children's author Janet Halfmann is at it again -- she's winning awards! Her adorable book, Little Skink's Tail, published by Sylvan Dell,
has been voted Sylvan Dell's classic by Sylvan Dell readers.
Here's the link to the Sylvan Dell blog post making the announcement: http://sylvandellpublishing.wordpress.com/2012/07/05/pick-a-classic-picture-book/
In case you haven't caught Janet's fun and entertaining presentations at the South Milwaukee Library, here she is a few years ago reading Little Skink's Tail and having attendees try on various tails Janet fashioned to simulate tails Little Skink tried on after he lost his.
