Review:
A cute children’s book with bright pictures and an inspiring story. My four-year-old enjoyed it as well as her older sister. Quick, adorable read for children under the age of seven.

2018: The Year for Series Books

Happy New Year, everyone!

I hope 2017 was a pleasant year. I read many books, wrote some new poetry, and made amazing new friends.

This year, I plan to focus more on book series. I hope to finish the next book in the Fluffy Folktales series before the end of the year. The title for the next installment is Beauty and the Beastly Herb Gardener. This one is going to be as much fun to write as Once Upon a Pastry was, and hopefully just as much fun to read!

Kyra and I will be working on the third installment in the Spunky’s Magical Adventures series. Though it is currently untitled, it will involve mermaids and underwater candy creatures. Kyra, the co-author and illustrator, is especially excited to get started on this new project.

Now on to something new. I have begun writing on a new children’s series for middle-grade. A science fiction/fantasy story, this series will focus on a group of children who become stuck on another world. More serious minded than our previous stories, this will not be a picture book, but will certainly bring out the best of your imagination. The first book of the Tales of Mentara series will be coming out before you know it.

That’s it for announcements. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2018, and keep reading indie!

Ghostly Writes 2017

Hello fellow readers!

Halloween is almost upon us, and so I wanted to share some news about the release of a new scary anthology that I took part in. Last year, I had a short story in Ghostly Writes Anthology 2016 presented by Plaisted Publishing House. This book is free and contains spooky tales from authors around the world. You can find it on Amazon here.

This year, we are back with more spine-tingling tales for the creepiest holiday of the year. Ghostly Writes Anthology 2017 is another collection that will leave you shivering in the night. I have contributed a poem this year called “The Crow Watches.”

New Cover!

Hello, everyone.

I just wanted to pop in and announce that What Money Can’t Buy has a new cover! I was having issues with the paperback edition of the original cover, so I decided to create my own using an old photo I took and hours of digital tinkering.

Without further ado, here is the full paperback cover for the young adult romance What Money Can’t Buy:

I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!
