When I write children’s books, I always try to incorporate several things into them:
1.  I want my stories to be universal so when parents read to the children, it can spark ideas and discussions between them.
2.  I don’t want the stories to talk down to children.  It’s never too early to build a good vocabulary.
3.  I want my readers, adults and children alike, to see the world through new eyes, in a new way, and never lose their sense of wonder.

Sand is Blue:  A Parable for All Ages About Creativity Lost and Found

Come with Penny on a life-long journey of self-discovery, as she learns what it is to be an artistic, creative person. People always seem to be getting in her way and telling her how things ought to be done. Will she ever reach her goal of becoming an artist?

This story is very near and dear to my heart.  Not just because it is my first book, but the story itself is taken from personal experiences in my life.  People who have read it and heard it, have admitted to me time and again that this has happened to them, too.  This is a little book, with a BIG message.

Available on Amazon, in Kindle and paperback format.
