Hello! Thank you for visiting my space.
I am a mom and a new grandmom, and these are my favorite paths in life. I am also an attorney, a volunteer firefighter, and a Dragon's Way Qigong instructor. As you can see, I rely on post-it notes to keep myself organized!
My first book "Sherman's World - Finding Courage" is about the fire service and this book gave me the opportunity to create the special friendship between Sherman and Gus. The story blends ideas about fire safety for children with Sherman's quest to be a firefighter. I hope that your young reader finds it both funny and exciting as Sherman learns the importance of loyalty and courage in the face of danger.
My second book "Sherman's World - Finding Ghosts" follows Sherman and Gus as they become even closer friends and take turns defending each other against bullies -- Rufus - a mouse bully - and Capitaine DuBois - a ghost bully. In this story, they collaborate to find solutions to problems along with their new friend, Mimi. I added a few French phrases throughout the story because Mimi and her mice tribe are descendants of mice who came from France. Tres bien!
Sending you my best wishes that you'll find the right book for your young reader!
P.S. My blog "Animal Trivia and Tidbits" offers an assortment of facts about the universe we live in.
"Sherman’s World - Finding Courage" is my book published in 2020.
This story follows Sherman, a young, field mouse, as he makes a winter home in a firehouse. There, he meets Gus, a meadow grasshopper, and starts a training program to become a real firefighter. When spring arrives, Sherman's firefighting skills are tested not once but twice!
First, Sherman rides with firefighters to rescue a smelly, wet cat stranded in a tree.. When the people can't reach her, it's up to Sherman to come up with a plan. But his plan is dangerous and Sherman must risk his own life to save the cat. Will he do it? Will he succeed and live to tell the story?
Later, Sherman is in the wrong place at the right time when an injured firefighter needs help and other firefighters cannot find him. Will Sherman stay with the firefighter and devise a rescue plan? What will he do? Will it work?
Humor, action and friendship move this story along in short chapters. For readers 8-10 ~ 120 pages.
