A writer inspired by nature and human nature


“Meeting the challenges of life at every stage of life is no easy task. Matilda and her friends encourage readers and listeners of all ages to meet those challenges with patience and persistence.

“Matilda’s story is my story. It’s you story too. It’s a story the kids will want to hear you read to them again and again.” (Bette A. Stevens)

“One concern parents have is how to inspire their children to meet challenges with patience and persistence. This is the plot of a [children’s] book, ‘Amazing Matilda’.” ~Paula Hrbecek Examiner.com

  1. My metaphorical hat is doffed. I wrote a children’s book 14 years ago after my first three months in the former Soviet Union. And still it sits. I know how to market to adults. It’s kids that boggle my mind. We should talk sometime before winter hits again.

    • Thank you for stopping by and for you lovely note, Janet. 🙂 Marketing skill is one of those crazy things that alludes this writer. I give a great deal of credit to my membership in #RaveReviewsBookClub for read/reviews by fellow authors and readers. Being a self-published author, the learning curve remains steep, so I’m always on the lookout for tips for those in the know… I published AMAZING MATILDA in 2012 and continue to follow her friends’ advice, “Keep trying…” So glad we’ve connected and look forward to ‘talking books” with you. 🙂 Have a great week! xo

  2. Sounds like a beautiful book

  3. This is one of my favorite meme’s, Bette. Every parent should snatch up a copy for their children!

  4. Lovely book, Bette! Amazing Matilda is perfect for schools and libraries. All children should read this book to learn about Matilda. Wonderful learning experience! Hugs ❤️

  5. This is a wonderful book Bette. i enjoy reading it with my grandkids. 🙂 Thanks for writing and illustrating it so beautifully.

  8. I just purchased the ebook and looking forward to reading it (they say I am in my second childhood… 🙂 ) as I am interested in the message and like butterflies… also will be checking out Dog Bone Soup when I get a spare moment… 🙂

    • Thank so much, Dutch. I hope you enjoy MATILDA and appreciate your interest and support. Feeling blessed that I’ve sighted 12 adult monarchs in the garden since July 12 and was able to capture a few on camera. ❤ May your week be filled with wonders!

  9. This is a wonderful book, Bette. I have it on my Kindle and enjoy reading it when I want to escape the news. It takes me back to my childhood days when the world was simpler.

    • So glad you enjoyed Matilda’s story, Dutch. 🙂 Your thoughtful note made my day… My garden monarch count is up to 15 as of today. Wishing you a day filled with wonders! xo

      • I did enjoy the story and left some thoughts on Amazon, also purchased Dog Bone Soup… while the circumstances are not quite the same, would love to see how much those kids and I have in common… again, thanks for sharing! xo 🙂

  13. It sounds like a wonderful book, Bette, and will add it to my to-buy list. I wish my kids were still little to enjoy it. 🙂 ❤🌷
