Wendy’s Updated New Look

July 13th, 2015

I updated Wendy’s new look again. I decided to put her in a more “active” wheelchair. To do this, I lowered the back of Wendy’s chair removed the handles. We also changed the color so that her chair would stand out more on the cover.

Here she is!!!

Here she is!!!

I will have the cover soon. I can’t wait to show you!!!

The trip that inspired Wendy on Wheels Goes to the Beach

May 31st, 2015

This morning, Facebook sent me a notification saying I had memories. Six years ago today, I was with my family in Clearwater Beach, Florida on the vacation that would later inspire my first book, Wendy on Wheels Goes to the Beach.

Mandy used a beach wheelchair to go around Discovery Cove. We went snorkeling, swam with stingrays and dolphins. I loved it!!

This was such a fun trip! I loved spending time with my family. I had no idea at the time that trip inspire a children’s book, which would lead to more books.

In other news, I will have an updated image of Wendy for book #5 in the next couple weeks as well as a cover. I can’t wait to share it with you!!!

The Girl Who Saved Christmas

December 16th, 2014

The old expression goes, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. However, when I opened the packaging for William Thomas Thach’s new book, The Girl Who Saved Christmas, I was struck by the absolute beauty of this book. The rich, red velvet cover and gold snap made me feel like I was in for a one of a kind experience. This book is different than any other Christmas book I’ve ever seen. I had share it with my three-year-old book-loving son!

Inside the book was a beautifully written story. The concepts of all the children being bad and forgiveness were a little over my son’s developing mind. However, the story, language and images kept his attention. I’m a big believer in introducing quality literature at a young age. A wonderful story with a spectacular message may not be fully absorbed by their young minds, but he or she will grow in to it. The emotion conveyed by the gorgeous pictures kept my son engaged. He’s asked to read it four times already. He even brought it to his school to share with his preschool class.

People of all ages will love this book! The story of Molly McCame, Mr. Nibbles and Santa is sure to become a classic.  I’m so grateful to add it to my family’s Christmas book collection.  More information is available at MollyChristmas.com.
