Amazon Studios made the announcement yesterday that they greenlit our preschool series Wishenpoof!, along with four other kids’ show pilots.
Amazon Studios
I have to tell you that this little story has been inside my head since I was a little girl. I loved any well written, ‘magical’ book series and always wondered what it would be like if you were able to make the unimaginable happen!


I’ve always wanted to write for a strong female lead character who is smart, funny, caring and PROUD to be a bit girly.

When I first saw Carrie Bradshaw working it in a tutu and writing her column, I thought – see!  There it is!  A strong, smart girly girl…

So thanks to Amazon Studios, Wishenpoof’s Bianca is our gal.

Yes, the show involves much problem solving, empathy and techniques which aid in effective decision making, but Bianca’s also adorable, fun and funny, loves adventure and well..can make anyone’s WISHES come true.

How fun am I having making this one???  SO MUCH FUN!!

More info to come!

    Congratulations! I am always drawn to the magic in stories, too. I love the idea of your smart, inspiring, and magical female character.

    • Thanks Ellyn. I’m so excited about this one! Bianca’s quite relateable. I ca’tn wait till she starts streaming on Amazon Studios..but we’ve got a long way to go! Thanks so much for your feedback

    So, is this show, like, a preschool version of Fairly OddParents, then? (I know, that’s REALLY vague, but would that be close to accurate?

    • Sure. Much like Blue’s Clues was a preschool version of The Notebook 😉
      We’ll just have to wait and see won’t we. As always, I’m interested to see your review Jumpman!

        Okay…I guess I have to be more specific. 😉
        Much of FOP works like this: Timmy makes a wish, the fairies grant it, and Timmy quickly realizes the mistake he made.
        So is that how Bianca’s gonna work? Will she have to fix the implications of her wishes? 🙂
