Work in Progress!

Featured Image -- 2772

Hi everyone! I have to apologize for not posting lately. There have been many family commitments that have kept me too busy to blog or work on my novel and children’s books. Family always comes first!

I hope to get back to writing by the middle of next week. My new books are a work in progress!

Remember: Reading Gives You Wings to Fly!

If you have some time please check out for books for all ages. Children’s books in rhyme with life lessons, fun animal adventures without anything frightening for young children.  Award-winning children’s book, Lamby the Lonely Lamb, is a wonderful example of the life lessons in Jemsbooks. Lamby the Lonely Lamb

In Lamby children learn that it is okay to be different and that you should be tolerant and accept differences in others.
