“I recently wrote my first children’s book, Two Mice at the Eiffel Tower, but did not have a clue where to start.  I knew Kathryn Starke as a nationally recognized children’s author and educator. The best decision I ever made was to sign on with Kathryn and publish through her company Creative Minds Publications. Kathryn is knowledgeable, has outstanding connections, gives sound advice through the editing process, and is always by your side.  I would highly recommend that you consider using Kathryn as your publisher. She will guide you through the process seamlessly.  I am honored to be a part of her team now and have already signed on for her services with my second book.  Kathryn Starke is a star in the world of literacy and publishing.” -Donna Dalton, Author, Two Mice Children’s Travel Series
