Gabby Makes a Friend

Gabby is an spunky puppy, who likes to find things. One day, while she’s out exploring, Gabby sees something move. The “smallish something” is Katie, a clever caterpillar.

Gabby reminds us that true friends will accept you for who you are, and also who you’re becoming, by accepting Katie as she goes from being a caterpillar to a butterfly.

This charming story is one that your kids will cherish and ask to read again and again.

Sadie’s Sea Turtle

Meet Sadie, who fell in love with the sea, after a family trip when she was three. Join her as she learns, from books and teachers, about a few unique and amazing sea creatures.

Find out why, although they aren’t unusually fast or smart, sea turtles hold a special place in Sadie’s heart. Watch her devise and implement a solution, to prevent dangers posed by plastic pollution.

Readers will share Sadie’s delight, and be equally surprised, when she’s rewarded for getting an entire town energized!  

What’s Next? Gabby Loves Letters will be out on March 2, 2022!

Writing for children is rewarding, in itself. But nothing is better than reading my stories to children, seeing their reactions, and answering their questions. I love how engaged kids are when I’m reading to them. They immerse themselves in the experience, “live” the tales they’re being told. Children’s insights, and attention to detail, never cease to amaze me. They draw connections, have realizations, and make suggestions that illustrate just how observant, and creative, they are.
