New Children’s Book Coming Soon!

Jesse Cover


Here is my new book cover for Jesse the Precocious Polar Bear.  I am very excited to introduce Jesse. This book is dedicated to a little boy I met while on vacation in Aruba last year.  When I mentioned to him that I was an author and wrote children’s books he became interested.  I asked him what his favorite animal was.  He didn’t hesitate and responded, “Polar Bear.”  Well, here is Jesse’s book.  I will be sending it to him as soon as it is printed and mailed to me.

Stay tuned for more information and links to Jesse the Precocious Polar Bear.  I expect to have Jesse up and running on Amazon by Monday.  I will also be offering a Goodreads Giveaway – 5 books, as I have previously done with two other books, Jerry the Crabby Crayfish and Lamby the Lonely Lamb.
