Del Mar - Sunday October 15th at 3:00 pm -- Phyllis Schwartz reads and signs "Mom Wombat Says Make War No More!". and other books.
Phyllis Schwartz is a married mother of two, who, after a successful career in the TV news business, finally has the time to indulge in and focus on her “civilian” writing. Even as a kid, she kept a diary and wrote little stories and poems, a creative release that continued well into adulthood. She wrote news by day and poetry by night. And despite battling three different kinds of cancer over more than three decades, she is still filled with energy, joy, and optimism, and she looks forward to writing much more poetry and children’s books in the future. Her writing often centers on what she observes daily: including her friends and family, her garden and her beautiful beach town residence in dreamy Encinitas. They all provide continued inspiration for her verse. "Wombat" is her second children's book.
Her first "When Mom Feels Great, Then We Do Too!" is a rhyming riff based on her cancer and motherhood experiences. Both books are illustrated by the talented Siski Kalla.
