In this day and age we have many avenues to reach millions of people all over this world of ours. There’s just one catch: you have to be computer-friendly, or know someone who is educated in social media mainstreaming. I am blessed with a 13 year-old grandson who just happens to be my personal computer wizard. Together we were able to use my book knowledge and his expertise in computer technology to put together a book trailer that makes us smile with pride. Being our first endeavor, we feel confident that you will enjoy it enough to read the book if you haven’t already. With two other books in the series I expect to see more video trailers in the near future. Who knows, Christian may have opened up a promising future at the ripe age of 13.
Congratulations, Christian, on a job well done!

Hi everyone! We all know Christmas is just a few weeks away. We’re all looking for the perfect gifts for our loved ones. Some are easy to shop for while others can strain your brain searching for a truly unique and original idea. If you have children you are buying for, why not consider a book? The art of reading a printed book has nearly taken a backseat to the more digital world of e books and readers. I was born into a world (many, many years ago) in which there weren’t any such creatures as iPads, iPhones, or Kindles. Holding a book, even smelling the ink-printed pages, gives a certain comfort where an electronic device lacks. Don’t get me wrong, I have all of the above mentioned devices. All of my books are offered in an ebook version if that is what you truly prefer. Everyone has their own form of reading comfort. It’s all what you get used to. Remember, I am from the pre-electronic age and I just prefer a book in hand and how it feels to turn the pages.
If you are looking for a story that will keep the interest of your 8-12 year olds, THE GHOST OF STONEBRIDGE LANE will fill their need. I have even had adults read this chapter book and they can’t say enough how much they enjoyed the heart-warming story. And don’t forget, Book II of The Stonebridge Ghost Tales entitled THE GHOST OF THE FROZEN NORTH will be coming out in the early spring and then Book III THE GHOSTS OF STONY MANOR is due n late 2015. NAKITA’S BIG QUESTION offers colorful illustrations and a story that will keep the interest of a young reader or preschooler. There is still time to get these books for Christmas but don’t delay. This special day is creeping up faster than we realize.
Click on the specific pages to the right of this post for links to purchasing these age-appropriate books for your child or grandchild for Christmas. I know you or your child/grandchild will not be disappointed.
I will have a booth at the Hendricks County Flyer Holiday Craft Show in Danville, Indiana on Saturday, November 8th, from 9 am to 3 pm. and Sunday, November 9th, from 10 am to 3 pm. THE GHOST OF STONEBRIDGE LANE and NAKITA’S BIG QUESTION will be available for sale and personal autographs.
I am offering a new option for original books. One-of-a-Kind-Books is an opportunity for you to have an original book written specifically for your child. The story will be original fiction based on facts you supply to me through an information form. If a book is ordered in the next two weeks, it will be ready before Christmas. If you are interested, please contact me through the CONTACT PAGE at this web site.
CLICK HERE for a five star review at Readers’ Favorite for THE GHOST OF STONEBRIDGE LANE. This is the first book in The Stonebridge Ghost Tales.Book two, THE GHOST OF THE FROZEN NORTH, and book three, THE GHOSTS OF STONY MANOR, will be released in 2015 by Dragonfly Publishing, Inc. It is a dream come true to be able to write children’s books and to receive such high ratings in literature. My inspiration has been my 12-year-old grandson, Christian. He is the driving force behind my desire to write good, entertaining books for children. I am very proud to say he is the starring character in this series. I hope I have made him proud.
