Well, in between cleaning out closets and drawers that hadn't been touched in 30 years, I finished writing two books.
I like to say that it includes everything that "Guns and Ships" left out!.
I illustrated my book with classic pictures of people and events in the story that are in the public domain. Here's an example:
One early reader had this to say about this book:
So listen up, my children, and I'll do my best to tell
How a teenaged French aristocrat served all of us so well.1
Without his help, we might have lost our fight for Liberty,
And we’d still be lowly subjects of the British monarchy!
Liberty-Loving Lafayette: How "America's Favorite Fighting Frenchman" Helped Win Our Independence is available now from:
The second book, Bizzy, the Bossy Boots Elf (which I actually started writing six years ago), came out last month. A rhyming poem modeled on "A Visit from St. Nicholas,"Bizzy is the 5th in my Santa's Izzy Elves Series.
It was great fun working with my illustrator, Shayne Hood. These pictures were much more complicated that those in my previous elf stories. Many of the illustrations had all 8 Izzy Elves in them, and one actually had 16!
This paperback and Kindle book is currently only available from Amazon, although there will be more sources soon.
Here's the link:
Whew. I guess I better get back to those closets and drawers!
