Hi friends! I am excited to do National Novel Writing Month again this year. Last year I signed up, but didn’t participate as I had entered a mentoring program and was working on art over writing. This year I’ll be reworking the next four novels in “The Tales of Christian Tompta.” I need a titleContinue reading “NaNoWriMo 2019”
Hi folks! The 4th book in “The Tales of Christian Tompta” series is out! Christian finally treks the last leg of his journey, with Papa.

Coming to Amazon October 25, 2018!
Hello! Saturday, September 29th, I’ll be sponsoring a conical-making craft project at Bill Yeck park in Centerville from 1-3pm. I won’t have books, this is just for fun at the Gnome & Fairy Festival. Here are my first attempts: I’ve also designed some stickers for the hats. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram,Continue reading “Upcoming Event!”
Tomorrow’s the big day! I’ll be reading “Meet Christian Tompta” at 11am, and bringing coloring pages and bookmarks to design for the kiddos.

Happy Independence Day! I’m excited to show you all the interview I had with Greg Murphy, from Murphy’s Used Books – a Dayton local bookstore where I’ll be reading “Meet Christian Tompta” on July 21 at 11:00. If you’re in the area, come on down!
Fantasy stories: vacation, mental escape. Kids also need them.
Each book is like a baby, created, born, and attended through rewrites, edits, and proofs. Baby grows into childhood; every new version improving, then adding input from outsiders. Childhood turns into adulthood… I putz with the manuscript until it’s time to let it fly, even if I’m not ready.
I’m so happy to announce that the third book, “Gnomeling Journeys to Joddeburg,” in “The Tales of Christian Tompta” series has released! It is currently available on Amazon, BN.com, and Books-a-Million. Also exciting is that I’ll be doing a mini book tour with 4 events: 3 local and one in Michigan. Come out and seeContinue reading “Hello Friends!”
Today I’m so excited (but also a little nervous) that one of my very good friends is getting ready to read my books to and with her kiddos tonight. Look at this cute photo she sent with those big smiles – the kids are excited too! Squeeeeeeeee!
