"I read this book in a day and half because it’s so much easier to focus and imagine when the whole family isn’t home. The first day I started I read pretty much the whole thing but was unable to finish until the next day. This suspenseful thriller is very descriptive all the way through, each character and place is described so well that you not only imagine it in your head so easily but it makes you want to keep reading til you know how it ends. I would love to know what unfolds with Jodi, Jolene, and Clayton. It is definitely a great read for all suspense seekers."

The Broken Tea Cup Goes To The Market
Andre is a story about self discovery. How we are all on this earth for a unique purpose. As Andre explores his own self identity as a tea cup who is not perfect but is broken, Andre learns about himself through a journey of discovery – where does the tea come from that fills his cup? A child who reads Andre The Broken Tea Cup Goes To The Market can question and learn about his or her own self identity, what makes them unique and special and what kind of purpose they may behold despite their own imperfections.
Little Blue Shoe
Little Blue Shoe was inspired by an actual shoe that laid in the median of a Highway. I developed this story in light of that blue sneaker which became a quest for finding a lost item; the main character’s mother teaches her daughter how to backtrack to find a missing item. This story is about an adventure into sometimes obscure places to recover something that is lost. Little Blue Shoe teaches a child how to think, exude patience and learn some lessons on safety along the way.
