It’s All About the Books

Now available, One Unicorn Wish is a fantasy for Adults, but Upper Grades, Young Adults, New Adults,if you remember BookCoverPreview.dobeing a child, will also enjoy it.  It’s the story where the writing analysis matched my style with Neil Gaiman’s.  The story started from a flash I posted to a picture on my Tumblr site last October and matched with this cover photograph given to me for this use by the photographer.  It’s the reliving of a ten-year-old’s memory when a special wish came true…for a little while.



The Carousel Pony,  A Make-a-Wish Story is now released.

Best Final Pony Full

With my granddaughter’s love of horses budding Ithought this would be a good imaginative start. Here a fairy pony held by a spell inside a carousel pony winks at Sadie.  Her belief and love for it helps her wish come true, just not the way she would have thought.

I’m working on the illustrations now, and haven’t decided if the cover will be this photograph or a drawing of it.  I’ve tweaked the photo to be lighter so the background of the carousel is easier to see.  A drawing won’t reveal so much.
