Today in the Library we have ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Virginia Heath, who has dropped in to say hello and to share some insights into their life as an author.

You are very welcome, Virginia, please introduce yourself:

Virginia HeathI was born just outside of London and still live on the outskirts of the city. I am married to a wonderful man and have a daughter and a son, both in their late teens. For the last decade I have been teaching history to teenagers in a British secondary school. I loved teaching, but in the back of my mind I had always wanted to be a writer. When I hit the age of 46, I realised that if I didn’t do it soon then I probably would never do it at all. So I quit full-time teaching at the start of 2014 and worked part-time. On my days off I wrote. Then…

Biggest sale on books you may or may not have heard of!

Many have read these, many more have not. Some will share this because they love them, other won’t because they don’t wish to inflict my books on people they care about. On the flip side of that, if you didn’t like them, share this to your enemies! Plenty of opportunity abounds for lovers and haters alike! Here is your chance to spread the love (or torture those you feel are deserving). All of my books are on sale in one way or another, so take advantage of it since I don’t do these often.

My Post along with Altered State (NC Policy Watch) on Washington Post’s The Answer Sheet May 19, 2016

Filed under: Uncategorized — mirymom @ 5:09 pm

I’m a North Carolina teacher, too. Have been for a decade now (I have taught in 3 other states as well). It’s my first non-union state and that’s been quite an eye-opener and heart-breaker. Kudos to you for your thoughtful analysis and willingness to fight. Our future is worth the fight.

My post concerning how the NC General Assembly has “dismantled” public education in NC was placed on “The Answer Sheet”, run by Valerie Strauss, The Washington Post‘s education reporter. Also included was a bit from Altered States written by the amazing Lindsay Wagner when she was with NC Policy Watch. Currently she is writing for the A.J. Fletcher Foundation. Simply put, she does outstanding work.

Take a look if you can.

What an ugly situation! I never really thought that this kind of blatant theft of ideas happened and I hate that it happened to you.
