Ramone, a shy, ruby-throated hummingbird, is about to leave the nest for the first time. But his anxiety and fear keep him from taking off as he contemplates all that could go wrong. Full of kind words and encouragement, Ramone's mother gives him room to work through his emotions, building his confidence and letting him set his own pace. Ramone watches as his friends soar through the sky, realizing all he might miss out on if he doesn't conquer his fear. Ramone's adventure showcases the emotions, both positive and negative, children experience as they approach new challenges. Accompanied by strikingly beautiful illustrations, this tale guides readers through Ramone's emotional journey, showing kids that fear must be overcome in order to grow.

I have been writing short stories since I was a child. My lifelong aspiration to become a published author has come true with SOAR. I am excited to share this beautiful story with families as they follow Ramone on his incredible journey.
I graduated from the University of Delaware and reside in Lititz, Pennsylvania, with my husband and two wonderful children trying to navigate everyday life.
