Greetings from Shepherdsville, Ky.! My name is Leigh Anne Florence. I am the author of the "Woody, The Kentucky Wiener" children's series. The series is based on Woody, our little black and tan miniature dachshund and his sister, Chloe, our sandy-colored miniature dachshund. I am a Kentucky native and former educator. My husband, puppies and I spend our days in Kentucky public schools, libraries and other venues speaking on "Woody's Five Ways to Be Successful" and "Woody's Five Ways to Improve Writing."
On July 15, we had the extreme pleasure of being a part of the Boyle County Public Library Summer Reading Program. We really enjoyed spending time with the young members of this community. Woody and Chloe were showered with hugs and kisses! Thanks to everyone for the great hospitality we were shown. A special thanks to Libby and all of the staff of the Boyle County Public Library for preparing our visit and making us feel right at home! We also had the pleasure of visiting Maddy's Books on the following day. A special thanks to Mike and Janet for a wonderful day! Also, if you don't have a Woody book, make sure you stop by Maddy's to get a copy.
