My hope here is to keep my readers informed of all of my latest projects, get new ideas and feedback on the stories and books that I've already published, and just to connect with people that appreciate the value that reading has for kids. My goal is to inspire imagination, make people laugh, and hopefully change even just one life no matter in how small a way. I hope that you will follow me in my journey.

Globlins in the Garden!

OK, so now I'm almost ready to release my third book - Globlins in the Garden. It's a whimsical story about a little girl who gets to plant a new flower garden. But...the flowers all smell.."different".

Have you ever sniffed a flower that smells or strawberries?

But something just wasn't right with these flowers. They seemed to move in strange and unnatural ways when no one was looking. Hmmm......

So stay tuned! I know you'll like it.

Funny Things I Heard At The Bus Stop, Volume 2

Volume 2 is done!

This book has 4 stories and a poem, and is perfect for any elementary schooler. Honestly, any kid that can pay attention to a story (maybe 2 or 3 years old) on up should enjoy the stories in this volume.

And for the slightly older kids around 6-7 they can easily read these at bedtime, or anytime! If you're a parent that likes to read to your kids (like me) then this is another book that you need to pick up (in addition to my first book ;) that is a #1 best seller) that I know your kids will love.

Please pass the word....if you like the stories I'm trying to get my name out there. It's hard being an indie author, but with good writing and persistence the rewards will come.

My New Book is Ready!

Hey everyone!

I've been finishing up last minute touches on my new children's short story collection. It's entitled "Funny Things I Heard At The Bus Stop" and it should be a delight for any elementary schooler!

This volume (I have more planned) is geared towards the "older" crowd of maybe 8 to 11 year olds, but only for the readers. Kids of ALL ages should enjoy listening to it if parents will be reading it to them. Definitely all-age appropriate.

I created a cover that I think will be very representative of the collection. I can't wait for you all to see it.

This first volume took a lot of time to get together. When I first started this journey, I had all sorts of ideas in my mind about what kind of stories I wanted to put in it. Some were stories that I've told my kids a hundred times. Some were new but whimsical enough that I thought they would be good.

I decided to pick the stories that I thought were perfect for a little older readers, but fun for all. I have a lot more stories like that - some on "paper", some in my head - for future volumes.

But I also wanted to create a book that could be read by kids of different ages. That's where my next volume comes in. It will be easier to read, so the younger crowd can pick it up and enjoy it just as much as the older kids. And the stories are geared toward a younger audience.

Anyway, I just wanted to get this blog started so if anyone wants to follow along and learn about any upcoming projects, or give me some feedback/advice/story ideas, I'll be here!
