Dear Parents &
Writing children's short stories has always been a hobby for me. Ideas have emerged from real life experiences and usually, from a child with endearing character traits. Most often, my inspiration came from my late daughter, Tammy, who expressed the most precocious, yet charming and unique sense of humor I have ever known in a child. Even as a little girl, it became evident that she cared very deeply for the well-being of others and set a wonderful example of love and positivity to her little friends and adults alike!
And so I chose to enter the wonderful world of children's writing with the introduction of two book series, Sunshine and Andy-Roo! All of my books impart an age appropriate moral for kids in the 3 to 7 year age group. They are never too young to learn life's little lessons and what better source is there than a well-illustrated children's book!
Sunshine I'll Make You Smile! is available in a traditional version AND in March 2013, an Irish adaptation was released to recognize the culture of magical Ireland, entitled Sunshine and Her Big Blarney Smile! From time to time, you will see new cultural releases which I affectionately regard as my little travellin' Sunshines! Children who learn about symbolic cultural differences among the countries of the world will be fascinated...castles, folklore, and more!
Andy-Roo The Birthday Surprise! is my first release in the Andy-Roo series which touches lightly on an age appropriate anti-bullying message in a creative way. Andy-Roo made a good impression on Kart Kids and was subsequently awarded a 2013 Kart Kids Book List award and is being sold in the Kart Kids Bookstore.
NEWSFLASH! ON THE DRAWING BOARD!
Now it seems that Sunshine and Andy-Roo have each developed their own loyal following! Many are asking, "WHAT'S COMING NEXT?" Well then - let me tell you now! Each of my books will have it's very own Activity Story Book, complete with story, coloring and additional little surprises. The first Activity Story Book was released in May 2013 for Sunshine and Her Big Blarney Smile! Two more are targetted for release this year.
You'll be the first to know when I release more new titles!
