Welcome to 3 Questions Wednesday! Today Inspired Prompt welcomes Sheri Poe-Pape! Thanks for taking the time to join us.
Who is your favorite author?
Good choice for a favorite in author and story! Next question…
If you could write about anyone or anything fiction/nonfiction who or what would you write about?
Sheri: I would write a new book about the band, The Monkees. I loved their hit, Daydream Believer.
A fun band from the early 1970s. Their tunes were catchy! Who didn’t love Davy Jones? Last question:
If you could spend time with a character from your book or another book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?
Sheri: I would like to spend it with the character Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, just following her through her adventures in Oz.
Yes, she did go on quite the adventure; one that taught all of us a little something. Thanks so much for dropping by!
Sheri Poe-Pape is offering to give away a book! Comment on this post that you would like to be included in the drawing and any other comment. We will draw a name on Sunday, October 13th.
Cassie’s Marvelous Music Lessons
In this delightful story, Cassie is welcomed to a new home filled with music, but when Mrs. Applebaum doesn’t seem to understand what Cassie is saying, or how talented she is, the happy little dog becomes an unhappy little dog. Fortunately, with a good ear and a kind heart, Mrs. Applebaum finds the perfect solution to Cassie’s problem, proving once again that music is the universal language.
Cassie Pup Takes the Cake??
Cassie has a new home, and a new owner with a bakery, who quickly signs her up for a cupcake bake-off with national cupcake champion, Cordelia Cat. Sparks fly from the beginning between the two, along with crazy fun and unexpected endings. Who do you think will win?
Though Sheri Poe-Pape has written many internet articles about people in the arts and in history, “Cassie’s Marvelous Music Lessons” and “Cassie Pup Takes the Cake??” are the author’s first two children’s books. She has also been Director/Educator of the Pape Conservatory of Music for the past thirty-nine years. Each day, she warms up on the piano, and for fifteen of those years, a small dog has been her constant companion.
In recent years, little Cassie has stood on the right side of the keyboard and brushed the author’s hands off the piano keys and helped also to be a ‘baker’s helper’ – habits that inspired these stories! The author is a graduate of Northern Illinois University where she studied music, English and creative writing. She lives with her family in Northern Illinois, where she continues to write and to teach music-alongside Cassie.
