My name is September Cardiff. I am an author, children's performer, magician, ventriloquist, and motivational speaker. I am a mother of four amazing boys, who are each such a joy in my life. I have a wonderful husband of 33 years, who is my best friend, and I love him dearly. I was also blessed with 2 adorable granddaughters! I have been performing for over 20 years at schools and libraries all over Kentucky, South Carolina, Florida and Georgia. I love to motivate people, especially children. One of my favorite things to do is to instill in each child a love for reading that will help them succeed throughout their lives. I am currently working on publishing my second book. It is called “Batty over Books”. I work with youth groups in Georgia and South Carolina giving workshops on numerous motivational topics. I teach and coordinate an assortment of Boy Scout training's throughout the year, in the Coastal Empire Council here in Savannah, training Scout leaders and youth..
MY MOST EMBARACING MOMENT WAS WHEN I WAS PERFORMING AS A LITTLE OLE' GRANNY IN FRONT OF A HUGE AUDIANCE OF ELEMENTARY STUDENTS.
AS I WAS JUMPING AROUND HAVING FUN PRESENTING MY SHOW, I MOVED ONE WAY AND MY WIG WENT THE OTHER, LANDING SMACK DAB IN FRONT OF THE FRONT ROW. I DID WHAT ANY GRACEFUL GRANNY WOULD DO AND PLOPPED IT RIGHT BACK ON MY HEAD AND WENT ON WITH THE SHOW.
I PLAY A VERY UNIQUE AND UNUSUAL INSTRUMENT.
THAT IS CALLED A "SHOE KAZOO"
IT IS MADE OUT OF A RECYCLED BABY SHOE
AND A KAZOO.
IT HAS BEEN SEEN AND ENJOYED BY CHILDREN AND FAMIIES ALL OVER
Meet My Family
My family is definitely not your ordinary family. We put the "C" in crazy and the "F" in fun. We love spending time together as a family and there is never a dull moment! My son Hayden is married to a cute little Brazilian sweetheart, that has given me two beautiful granddaughters Sofia and Isabella. He's working towards earning his Masters in business. My son Justin is in business for himself. Cayman is going to the University of Utah studying pre-med, and then there is my youngest child named Tazman, the name says it all! Last but not least there is my husband who is one of a kind. He is a VP at Goodwill, a big teddy bear that you can't help but love!!

"September has the personality and the magical qualities it takes to draw the children into her world of book exploration and reading. They were excited to meet and interact with a real-live author, and learn what it takes to bring thoughts and ideas to life in a book."
