If you are visiting my site chances are you are either a reader or thinking of getting my books for a reader. 

You may have noticed, as you view this site, that I have many books planned for the future. Do any of them interest you?

If so you probably want to see them get published. Did you know there is a simple way you can help make this happen? 

Buying my current books is one way, but this is actually not what I am talking about. The simple way you can help is by leaving a review wherever my books are listed after you have read them. This is especially helpful if you really liked them. 

Just one or two sentences is all that is needed, and some places, such as Goodreads, allow you to rate books without having to leave a review. This also helps, though not as much. 

Anyway, if you like my books I encourage you to leave a review in one or more of the following places, Goodreads, Amazon, and/or Barnes and Noble. 

Remember, by helping an author you are also helping yourself. And if you haven't read my books but are the parent or relative of a kid who has, you can simply ask them for their opinion of the book and write a review for them. 

In the Works! 


This is where you can find information on all the books I currently have in progress. This page will be updated occasionally to include new books, changes to books, and new information on the books. When release of a book in this section is coming up it will be moved to the Coming Soon section of this site.

Nonfiction Books:

Animals in the Shelters

Animal Snippets: Memories of My Pets and Anipals

Just Dreaming: The Dreams I Had and the Stories They Became


Series:

Animal World

Animal World: Endangered

Animal World is a couple of book series that I am working on that are fictional stories featuring true facts about animals. The aim of this series is to educate readers about animals and their lives in a fun and entertaining way. In total the Animal World series will feature over 250 animals in 41 books. The series will be split into three parts: Animal World, Animal World Super Editions, and a split off series: Animal World: Endangered.


The first Animal World series will have 22 regular books, and 5 super editons. 

The split off series: Animal World: Endangered, will have 14 books and will focus exclusively on endangered species.

At the end of each book will also be a nonfiction section featuring some facts about each of the animals in the book as well as a nonfiction introduction in the beginning to introduce the biome or common thing each animal has in the book. For example, the one book in the series will be about animals that live in the Alpine, so in the beginning, a nonfiction intro to the Alpine environments with information such as the locations they are found in and the animals that live in them, will be presented before the stories that are in the book. Then in the ending nonfiction section I will go into more detail about the animals in the stories which will feature both facts I used in the story as well as some other interesting facts about the animals.
