I am grateful to Sullins Adademy Principal, Mr. Roy Vermillion, who invited me to speak to the second through fifth grade students, on November 3, 2016, regarding "My Days with Nell." My sweet grandsons attend Sullins, so I am there each week, but this is the first time I will visit to share my love of the Biltmore Estate located in Asheville, NC. I plan to share some of the research, but will concentrate on the writing process as it pertained to publication. Also, if there's enough time, I wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to share some historical information abouth the wonderful Christmas traditons, customs, and stories with these students. I am excited!
