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.


Indie Pride Day

Hello everyone!

It is Indie Pride Day, and I am proud to support my fellow indie authors from around the world. Indie authors, musicians, and artists may have a bad reputation because they are not with a big-name company, but I say that is bologna! Many of us choose not to go with such companies so we can have the freedom of doing things our way. That does NOT make our work sub-par!

We are passionate about what we do and put 100% into our work, so show your favorite indies some love and share their Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, websites, blogs, etc.

Let’s get the word out and show everyone just how great indies truly are. Use the #indieprideday or #IndieBooksBeSeen hashtags on Twitter today! Visit the Facebook event for Indie Pride Day and discover some new-to-you authors!

Girlie and the War of the Wasps


My review for Girlie and the War of the Wasps by Claire Plaisted

Rating: 3 Stars


Some great life lessons for kids in a cute story about insects. However, there were jarring editing issues and some sections did not flow well. A good editing sweep would make this a perfect story for children.

Exciting News!

Hello everyone, hope your year is going great so far.

At the end of this month, Kyra and I will be having a book signing at our local library. This is the very first book signing for either of us and we are equally excited and nervous. We hope there will be many more to come!

If you live in North Carolina, perhaps you can swing by for a signed copy of Spunky and the Wizard’s Chair and some free bookmarks.

If you would like a signed copy of one of our books, please contact me here or through our Facebook page. I am more than happy to ship an autographed copy with a special note. Kyra may even draw you a picture!


Princess Alexia and the Dragon



My review of Princess Alexia and the Dragon by K. Meador.

Rating: 5 Stars

My Review:

What a darling story! A perfect tale for children, one full of adventure and a moral lesson.
K. Meador weaves a tale of a princess and her dog who set out to trap a nasty dragon, only to find that he isn’t so nasty after all. I loved the illustrations and the “pirate talk.”
Can’t wait to read more from this author.

How Maxwell Grover Stole My House


My review of How Maxwell Grover Stole My House by C.E. Vance.

Rating: 4 Stars

My Review:

What an exciting and suspenseful children’s story! We follow wimpy Zeke as he moves to a new town, makes his first real friend and becomes the target of his monstrous neighbor’s evil plans. Maxwell Grover, the nasty little man, wants Zeke’s house. And what’s more, he wants the magic hidden somewhere within…

Well written and fun, this story about a grown-up bully will have you rooting for the children, even when they execute their vicious and poorly planned pranks. In the end, even Zeke’s parents find out just how evil their neighbor truly is.
