Shh - listen. Can you hear the quiet, loving sounds of the nighttime world? From moths fluttering their powdery wings, to a nightingale’s sweet trills, to swaying willow trees softly shushing, shushing everyone to sleep, this rhythmic, rhyming lullaby will soothe and calm little ones.
Thanks for dropping by. I’m excited to announce that Nature’s Lullaby Fills the Night is now available. Night falls and the world sings a lullaby in this beautifully illustrated picture book. From moths fluttering their powdery wings to willows shushing, shushing in the breeze, tender nature scenes sweep across land, sea, and sky to soothe and calm little ones.
Dough Knights & Dragons was also recently released. It’s about a dragon and knight who are secretly friends but who are bound by law to duel in an upcoming tournament. Can the two cook up a plan to obey the edict but still save their friendship?
My own kingdom castle has a moat (drainage ditch), turret (chimney), and numerous knights (chess pieces). I’m married to Sir Runs-a-Lot and our royal line includes two dragon-loving, sword-collecting damsels (not in distress).
I’ve been a Tudor (tutor) of college math and taught many subjects at the elementary level. My published scrolls include 20 reproducible books and more than 100 poems, plays, puzzles, stories, lyrics, and online Disneyland articles.
I use my photos as inspiration for story ideas. Browse my website and discover how words paint pictures and pictures paint words. Enjoy!
